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.


If your fries are thinly cut they might need a little less time in the oven. Feel free to add other spices or reduce the paprika to your taste.
