Sweet potato wafer | sweet potato French fries | how to make crispy wafer

Homemade Sweet Potato chips are crispy and crunchy and so easy to make. All you need is a good slicer to make thin slices of sweet potato. Unlike potato chips, sweet potato chips have a little sweetness along with the savory taste that makes these chips tasty. These chips are not only salty, sweet, crunchy, and spicy, but also very crisp and a great evening time snack along with hot tea/coffee. I share two types of sweet potato wafers.  Do try this and enjoy it with your friends and family members.
