You may have noticed my recent post about homemade baked yam fries, and in it you will have noticed that I promised to share my yam fries dip recipe as well. Ironically, I perfected this recipe before I perfected the fries themselves—I do so love my dips and sauces! After much fiddling, I have created this sauce, which is tangy and smooth and altogether wonderful paired with homemade yam fries. It would also be a great dip for veggie sticks in general.
Without further ado, enjoy!
The Best Yam Fries Dip
Makes: about 1 1/2 cups
Cooking time: 10 minutes
- 1/2 cup each mayonnaise, yoghurt, and sour cream—or enough of two to make 1 1/2 cups
- 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp each dijon mustard (or plain mustard), cumin, and sugar
- 1 tsp dried tamarind or tamarind paste
- 1/2 tsp salt
- generous pinches of pepper and sage (savoury)
- optional, for the adventurous: a few chopped fresh mint leaves, a pinch of dried mint, or a drop or two of mint extract or creme de menthe liqueur
Combine the yoghurt, sour cream, and mayo until no lumps can be seen. Stir in remaining ingredients until smooth. Taste and make any adjustments to your liking. Serve with your delicious homemade yam fries!
