"No matter how hot your anger is, it cannot cook yams." -Nigerian Proverb

The refrigerator light goes on...

Soaking the fries in cold water chills the center. This gives the outside enough time to crisp up while keeping the middle of the fries from overcooking.

These can get a bit spicy if you add too much curry powder, but if you like them spicy, add a bit of cayenne pepper to the pan before adding the potatoes.

Curried Sweet Potato Fries, an easy, healthy recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Place the sweet potato wedges in the ice water and soak them for 1 hour.

Place a large skillet or sheet pan in the oven and preheat the oven to 400F.

Remove the sweet potatoes from the ice water and pat them dry just before cooking.

When the oven is hot, add the oil, curry powder, garam masala, salt, and pepper and stir well for about 30 seconds.

Add the sweet potatoes, stir, and return to the oven.

Roast for 20 minutes. Turn the fries about every 5 minutes to cook on each side. Serve hot.
