Print Spicy swede chips

The mild nuttiness of swede is a excellent setting for a bit of spice. Eat these golden chips with a simple roast chicken and some braised or steamed green veg. Or just serve them as a starter with a pot of mayonnaise for dipping.


  • 1 swede, about 600-700g, peeled
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
  2. Cut the swede in half, then into 1cm slices, then into chip-style lengths.
  3. Put in a baking dish and toss with the rest of the ingredients to evenly coat.
  4. Roast in the oven at for 40-45 minutes, until the swede is cooked through and turning golden brown.
