These are lip smacking, smoky paprika’y’, just one more sweet potato fry good. And since they are baked, they are guilt free in my book. So I have them as a snack, served along some burgers or as a dinner side. And emmm, well when ever really.

Plus lets chat about some other good bits.  

  • They are baked – guilt free.
  • Sweet potatoes are apparently full of the good carbohydrates – Ok, so even more guilt free.
  • Kiddoes love them – veggies in their belly.
  • You can change the taste with various spices – hot, hot, hot.
  • And they taste good – yeap.

And believe it or not I love serving these with this parmesan crusted chicken.

Someone gave me some La Chinata smoked paprika powder. I love it. In my opinion it is the best smoked paprika powder I have come across and made these sweet potato fries just gorgeous.

Author: Bintu Hardy


For the sweet potato fries:

  • 450 g (1lb) sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp corn flour cornstarch
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika I used La Chinata
  • Salt optional
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil enough to coat potatoes

For the garlic chilli mayonnaise:

  • 6 tbsp garlic mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce


  • Preheat oven to fan assisted 200C / 220C / 425F / gas 7.
  • Cut the ends of the sweet potatoes, peel them and cut into fries - try and cut them into even sizes so that they cook at the same rate.
  • Put potatoes into a ziplock bag (or a bowl ) add the corn flour, paprika and salt if using and shake to coat the potatoes.
  • If excess flour remains at the bottom of the bag then shake it out.
  • Add the oil to the potatoes and mix again till the potatoes are fully coated.
  • Transfer the fries to a non stick baking tray - spreading them out in a single layer with space between them.
  • Bake for about 15 mins then turn the fries over so that they cook on the other side.
  • Bake for another 15 mins till they are crispy (the edges might be a little bit brown but that just adds to the sweet taste).
  • Take them out of the oven and let them cool for about 5 mins.
  • Mix the garlic mayonnaise and chilli sauce together till very are very well combined.
  • Serve the fries with portions of the garlicky dipping sauce - omit the mayonnaise if serving vegans.
  • The best baked sweet potato fries ever.
