Sweet potato fries with yoghurt dipping sauce

Simple, delicious and a great replacement for potato fries. Sweet potato fries make a wonderful afternoon snack. Make yourself a batch, you won’t be disapointed.

Preparation time
Cooking time


  • 2 large sweet potatoes (yams)
  • 1 litre vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Dipping sauce
  • ½ cup Plain yoghurt
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 clove garlic (diced and crushed)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon parsley (chopped)

Cut the yams into sticks.

Heat the oil in frying pan over a medium heat. Each stove will be a little different, but don’t start too high. You’ll know you’ve got the oil to the right temperature if it’s not spitting and when you put the end of a raw yam fry in the oil, small bubbles will appear around it. Place the fries into the oil.

Remove the fries from the oil when they have golden brown edges and they have floated to the top. Place them on a plate with some paper towl to remove any excess oil. Sprinkle the fries with a pinch of salt and pepper. Serve warm iwith the dipping sauce. (The dipping sauce is easy..just mix everything together.)
