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
- 3 medium size russet potatoes – slice into julienne
- 1 teaspoon garam masala
- 2~3 pinches turmeric powder
- ¼ teaspoons cumin powder
- 1 pinch paprika powder
- 1 pinch cinnamon powder
- Some sprinkles of salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mint Yogurt Dip
- 3 tablespoon plain greek yogurt
- 1 hand cilantro
- 1 hand mint
- 1 clove garlic
- ½ small lemon for juice
- ½ jalapeno
- Some salt to taste
- 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.
- While potatoes are air-fried, prepare mint yogurt dip. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until they’re smooth. Set aside.
- 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!
