Sweet potatoes are said to be better than normal white potatoes because they have less calories, more Vitamin C and more fibres than the usual potatoes. Granted, they are sweeter and hence, have a bit more sugar, but that’s what makes them taste so good! Besides ordering sweet potato fries from Macdonald’s, we have some pretty delicious recipes for you to try out!

One tip: even though it usually comes with chilli topping sauce, Singaporean tastebuds will usually be more accustomed to the taste of mayonnaise paired with cheese when it comes to pizza!
