Happy Fri-Yay in Potato Month! Curry Fries & Mint Yogurt Dip

September is National Potato Month, so in this happy Fri-Yay-Friday, how about flavor bursting fries with refreshing herby mint yogurt dip? 

 

The crunchy fried light bites are always welcome on any occasion. It’s good for a snack or as a part of bar food on the side of a glass of drink. I usually have plain fries, but sometimes having fancy fries like garlic fries, truffle oil fries, loaded chili fries are welcome! And today is that kind of day, so join me for happy hour at home!

Curry Fries and Mint Yogurt Dip

<Ingredients>

Mint Yogurt Dip

 

<Directions>

  1. Sprinkle all the spices on the potatoes and pour olive oil. Toss well to evenly coat the spices to potatoes, and transfer them into the airfryer.
  2. While potatoes are air-fried, prepare mint yogurt dip. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until they’re smooth. Set aside.
  3. Assemble potato and dip. Enjoy!

This mint yogurt dip is inspired by mint chutney from an Indian restaurant I’ve visited. One day we ordered some curry and some kind of orange colored chutney and the green one, mint chutney came in small sauce containers, like it holds just 3 tablespoons of chutney. That sauce(well, should I call it chutney in the proper way?) went so good with spicy hot curry, but because they’re too good they’re all gone so quick. So I wonder, if I’m eating sauce rather than food? Also we put them on the side of curry, but are we doing it right anyway…? What food do you think you want some chutney? I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice! 

 

Happy Potato Month and enjoy your weekend!

    That Mint yogurt dip looks and sounds very delicious 😋 thank you for sharing it, dear Tanooki. 🙏🤩

    We always make our fries ourselves from scratch, like you did. 👍 They are so much better than deep frozen store bought ones.
    Of course we also always use lots of curry powder on ours. 😁👍

    Some time ago, I noticed that they become much crispier if you make them crinkled.
    I have a special knife which is also used do prepare Rujak and that works perfectly to cut crinkle fries. If you have the opportunity to get your hands on such a knife, I can highly recommend it. It even seemed to me that dips and sauces stick much better to the crinkled fries than to the “normal” ones. 😋

      Hi Livia, thank you for lovely comment, as always❤️

      I just checked the special knife you told me and it looks absolutely unique! When I was a kid, I used to eat crinkle fries a lot, maybe more than just a plain cut fries like McDonald’s has. It reminded me my childhood😊 I agree with you explaining they holds the dips well…as my husband always asks me if I’m eating sauce or that food, crinkle fries are perfect one for me😂
