Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Mayo

There are not a lot of foods that I’m basically always in the mood for, but sweet potato fries are one of them. This is not to be confused for regular fries…regular fries, I could pass on. But sweet potato fries are on another level for me.

Now I love all forms of sweet potato fries. Fast-food sweet potato fries, gourmet sweet potato fries, frozen sweet potato fries, etc. The thing is, most days of the week I [try to] cook at home. It’s cheaper, I enjoy it, and I feel better when I cook my meals most days of the week. This just means I’ve had to learn to perfect sweet potato fries at home.

I’ve been baking homemade sweet potato fries for years now, and every so often my methods change a little – from the spices to baking temperature and time, etc. Recently, I’ve found myself making the most crispy on the outside, soft on the inside sweet potato fries that I can remember. So I figured I’d share how I do it!

I also love ketchup, but recently have been playing around with dips. I always love the spicy or garlicky mayos that they serve with fries at restaurants – so I made my own easy curry mayo to go along with my fries and dang, it’s changed the game. All you need is a few simple ingredients to make these crispy homemade sweet potato fries with tangy curry mayo – the perfect side dish for any meal! You can also use the curry mayo as a spread on your burger, sandwich, whatever! Just saying. Get creative.

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 medium to large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 large pinch sea salt
  • pepper to your liking

Curry Mayo

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise of choice
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp lime juice to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line 1-2 baking sheets (depending on the size) with parchment paper. 

  2. Cut each potato in half width-wise, and then cut each half down the middle length-wise. Slice these potato quarters into short, thin fries. 

  3. Add the sliced fries to a large bowl and toss with oil. Add garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper and toss again to coat the fries. Lay the fries on the lined baking sheet and bake at 400F for 15 minutes. 

  4. While the fries are baking, make curry mayo by mixing your mayonnaise, curry powder and lime juice in a small dish. Place in the fridge until fries are ready. 

  5. At 15 minutes, remove fries from the oven and flip them to cook them evenly. Place back in the oven for 7-8 minutes. When this time is up, increase oven temperature to 425F and bake for 5 more minutes. This will help make your fries extra crispy. 

  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 1-2 minutes before serving as they will be hot! Enjoy!
