Homemade Sweet Potato Fries With Avocado Dipping Sauce Recipe
6 cups peanut oil, for frying
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon granulated white sugar
1 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup cold club soda
2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch or 1/4-inch fries
Avocado Dipping Sauce (optional):
1 medium avocado, pitted and mashed
2 to 3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt or sour cream
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
season to taste with cayenne pepper and smoked paprika
Heat the oil to 375 degrees F in a large pot or deep fryer. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.2. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, cumin, smoked paprika and sugar. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and club soda. In batches, dip the potatoes in the batter, allow any excess to drip off and then place them on a wire rack with paper towels underneath to catch the dripping batter. Repeat with rest of the potatoes.
Fry half of the potatoes, stirring occasionally until golden brown and crispy, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with half of the seasoning. Keep them in the oven to stay warm and crisp while you repeat with the remaining potatoes. Serve immediately.
