How to Make It

Step 1

Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion and curry powder in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until ready to serve. (Dip can be made up to 2 days in advance.)

Step 2

Prepare a charcoal fire, let burn to a gray ash and set grill 8 to 10 inches from coals. (Or preheat a broiler and set broiling rack 8 inches from heat source.)

Step 3

Cut sweet potatoes in half crosswise, then cut each half lengthwise and then into thirds to form fingers. Each potato should yield about 12 pieces. Place fingers in a large bowl, add oil, salt, pepper and cayenne. Toss well to coat.

Step 4

Grill or broil fingers, turning often, until partially charred and soft enough to easily penetrate with tip of a knife, about 10 minutes. Remove to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm with curry dip.

These were very yummy. I realized that parts of our grill are hotter than others so some burned a bit but still got eaten up! We sprinkled with extra salt right off the grill which was great!

These were simple to make and very yummy. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us to eat as a side dish with our veggie hot dogs. I put the sweet potatoes in a Ziploc bag with the oil and spices to get it mixed well without making a mess. I'm going to use the leftover curry dip with some braised asparagus tonight!
