My two top recipes of 2018 were I Speak French Fries & Jicama What?. Not just here but on Pinterest. I decided to do both with the curry seasoning I purchase from Primal Palate. Plus, I made a curry aioli.
The above air fryer recipes for potatoes fries and jicama fries will be the same with this recipe, you are merely changing out seasonings.
These fries were teenager approved.
The jicama fries are a tinge sweeter but nothing wrong with that. Works perfect with the curry.
Light tasting oil or garlic infused oil
Primal Palate curry powder
Simply Organic all-seasons salt
Preheat the air fryer to 385.
Peel the jicama skin. I used my chef knife and cut a thin slice to create a flat surface. I found it peeled more comfortable after a bit of refrigeration. It also worked better with the french fry cutter. Again you can slice them without the fry cutter, but it's an excellent kitchen contraption to have.
In the bowl drizzle light tasting olive oil over the jicama. Shake. Cover the jicama in curry powder and all-seasons salt. Shake. Jicama soaks in the seasonings, but it’s better to season as you go than over season. Some like salty and crispy others like less salt and not full-on crispy.
Pour into the air fryer basket. Cook for about 30 minutes. Depending on the desired crispiness. The jicama takes a bit longer. Every 7-10 minutes shake the jicama in the basket or use a spatula to move them about for an even cook. Have a taste and determine if you’d like to add more seasoning.
The jicama has more texture and bite to it but not the crunch like potato fries.
Next up will be the curry potato fries.
