Crispy yam fries with chipotle mayo are the ultimate pub/bar food. And because I’m a sucker for yam fries and don’t always want to eat the fried version, I do what I usually do and tried to recreate this delicious comfort food at home. Baking the yams instead of frying is a great option, however it’s difficult to end up with crispy instead of soggy fries. I’ve tried different variations including slicing them really thin, and dipping them in egg whites, but what I’ve found works the best is coating the yams in cornstarch or flour before tossing them with oil. And make sure to leave space in between the fries when baking.
And in case you weren’t already sold on making these, yams are packed with fibre, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin A, beta carotene and potassium, just to name a few!
