Directions for: Sweet Potato Fries with Chili Coconut Dip


Sweet Potato Fries

½ tsp salt

½ tsp smoked paprika

½ tsp ground cardamom

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled

½ cup cornstarch

Chili Coconut Dip

1 Tbsp grapeseed oil

Sweet Potato Fries

1. Heat oil in a large pot with a heavy bottom, or in a deep fryer to 350°F. Make sure the oil level is no more than one third of the pot as it will rise during the frying process.

2. Mix the paprika, cardamom and salt together in a small bowl.

3. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices and then cut the slices into 1/4-inch sticks. Put the cornstarch into a large bowl and add the sweet potatoes and toss well using your hands to make sure they are well coated. Working in batches, fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 6-7 minutes. Drain on paper towels and then sprinkle liberally with spice mixture. Serve with Chili Coconut Dip (see recipe).
