Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Mayo

This is one of those recipes that kept popping up all over the blogging world (with the promise of perfectly crisp fries!) so I figured I had to give it a try. I was actually impressed that something as simple as cornstarch makes such a big difference in how the fries turn out.

From The Art of Doing Stuff

1 large sweet potato, peeled
1 tablespoon ccornstarch
2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon curry powder

Preheat the over to 425 F. Cut the sweet potato into chunky fries, no bigger than 1/2".

Place the sweet potato and the cornstarch into a plastic bag. Seal the plastic bag making sure to partially inflate it like a balloon. Shake the bag to fully coat the sweet potato in cornstarch.

Transfer the sweet potato to a bowl. Drizzle the oil over top and gently toss to coat. Season with salt.

Place the fries on to a non-stick baking sheet. Ensure to space the fries well to allow them to cook evenly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

To make the curry mayo, combine the mayonaise and curry powder in a small bowl. Serve drizzled over the fries.
