Author Notes: A healthier version of french fries, this snack / side dish is brought to life with the addition of hot paprika. Paprika is often overlooked as a spice, but I think it is more versatile than simply being a coloring agent. In this dish, I think the spiciness of the paprika complements the sweetness of the vegetable, offering a taste that is addictive! - Rohit Mitter
