"No matter how hot your anger is, it cannot cook yams." -Nigerian Proverb
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.
Servings: 2 | Serving size: about 6 ounces fries
Cooking time: 30 minutes (does not include chilling time)
This recipe can easily be multiplied but makes terrible leftovers.
