Golden Turmeric Fries with Coriander and Mint Dip

Golden Turmeric Fries with Coriander and Mint Dip

Golden Turmeric Fries with Coriander and Mint Dip elevates the classic comfort food of chips (fries) to an impressive appetiser, party canape or as a tasty snack to enjoy with friends and family. 

Let’s start with the Coriander and Mint Dip.  I love herbs and grow a couple of types of mint in my garden.  This year for the first time, I have been growing Korean Mint which has a slight liquorice flavour.  I haven’t dared put it outside yet, as the weather has been variable however it is growing very well on the kitchen windowsill.  It doesn’t  have a strong minty flavour, so if you don’t have any you can simply add an extra 10 g of coriander leaves.   The dip is really easy to make as you just throw all the ingredients into a blender and whizz it up.  It will keep in the fridge for up to a week. 

How to make Coriander and Mint Dip

I made the Coriander and Mint Dip in the small jug of my Froothie G2.3 Platinum Induction Blender, which is great for small quantities and thicker mixes as it has rotating blades that scrape down the mixture from the sides of the blender, see below for details of how to get free UK postage and packing and bonus gift.

Turmeric is really ‘on trend’ in the food world, however, it’s anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and analgesic properties have been known for thousands of years as part of Ayurvedic medicine. The yellow colour comes from curcumin and it gives the potatoes in this recipes a lovely golden colour and an early flavour.  Turmeric is what gives curry much of its colour, and has a peppery, earthy taste, which works well with the potato of the Golden Turmeric Fries.

Making Golden Turmeric Fries in the HealthyFry

To make your Golden Turmeric Fries (chips) look extra special, cut them really square and in even sizes, soak for 30 minutes in cold water, then dry on a clean tea towel.  To get the turmeric coating, add oil and dried turmeric to a plastic bag, then add the potato sticks and move them around until they are coated and golden.  Pre-heat the Healthy Fry add the fries in a single layer and select the fries setting, halfway through the cooking, give the fries a bit of a stir.  If you don’t have a Healthy Fry you can follow the alternative instructions on the recipe card and bake in the oven.  If you are making a larger batch you can take the fries out 5 minutes before the end of cooking and then re-fry at 220C for 5-8 minutes.

      They were rather delicious, Kavey. I’d definitely try coating the chips with other spices too.

    This looks and sounds so good Janice, and the HealthyFry looks so handy for making healthy chips. I love turmeric and I bet the herby dip sets it off wonderfully!

    I’ve got an Optimum 9400 Froothie blender but not the air fryer. I think I need it as this looks awesome (a longtime fan of turmeric) and I don’t fry things as a general rule.

      I never thought I would use it as much as I have, Kellie. It is ideal for so many things.

    That air fryer makes awesome chips. Love your turmeric coating, it’s given them a lovely colour and as you know I’m rather a fan of this golden spice. The dip sounds rather awesome too. Have shared all over and will try and make it – if ever I can get my hands on some decent coriander that is! Thanks for linking up to my recipes.

      Thanks, Choclette. I think you inspired me to use turmeric in something other than a curry! Pity you weren’t closer as I have loads of Korean Mint plants they are taking over!

      Thanks Jo, I can’t stand soggy fries either, they do crisp up really well in the HealthyFry.
