An easy and delicious side dish recipe for sweet potato fries with a flavorful curry mayo dipping sauce.
I used to be a biiiiiig ketchup fan. That was, until I was introduced to Curry Mayonnaise. One dip of my sweet potato fry into curry mayonnase and I was hooked. It’s not only for fries, either! You can put it on sandwiches, burgers, wraps, anything you can think of that you would use ketchup for. It even has ketchup in it, so if you’re a ketchup-loving weirdo like I am, you can feel better knowing you’re not completely betraying your beloved condiment.
But I have to say, this curry mayonnaise dipping sauce definitely is the perfect pairing with sweet potato fries.

How to Make Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Mayo Dipping Sauce
To start, the sweet potatoes are cut into fries. I do this by cutting my sweet potato in half the long way and then set the sweet potato down on the flat side. Cut into strips and then cut each strip in half to resemble fries.
The sweet potato fries get tossed in olive oil, salt, and pepper and then roasted at 425 for 30-40 minutes. I always do mine on the longer side to get them a little crispy.
While the sweet potatoes are baking, you can whip up the curry mayo dipping sauce. Simply combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, curry powder, and garlic powder in a bowl and refrigerate until you’re ready to eat!

- 3 medium-large sweet potatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- kosher salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1-2 tbsp curry powder depending on your taste
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- To make sweet potatoes:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
- You can peel the potatoes or keep the skin on. I like to keep the skin on and scrub them really good to make sure they are clean, but I've done it both ways.
- Cut each potato in half the long way, the set flat side down and cut into 1/4" strips, then cut each strip into half to look like a french fry.
- Once all of the fries are cut, place onto prepared baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
- Toss them around with your hands or a spoon to evenly distribute the olive oil.
- Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, tossing after 15 minutes until they are cooked through and slightly browned.
- The cooking time range is so large because of difference in preference of how crispy people like their fries.
- If you want them extra crispy, cook 40 minutes.
- Keep in mind, they won't be crispy like fried fries...they are baked after all!
- To make the curry mayo:
- Mix all ingredients together well with a spoon.
- Refrigerate, or serve immediately.
