Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Mayo Dip

French fries / potato fries is my girl‘s favourite. She doesn’t like sweet potatoes as it is and I always try to include it in the diet in some form she loves to have. This sweet potato fries is one such attempt and yayy it was so good and she loved it too !!!

The garlic mayo is such a mouth watering dip that complements the flavor of the sweet potato with its tangy garlic taste.
