Ingredients
  • 6 cups peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup club soda, cold
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 by 1/4-inch fries
Directions

Heat the oil to 375 degrees F in a heavy-bottomed Dutch oven or deep fryer. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

Mix the salt, garlic powder, paprika and sugar in a bowl and set aside.

Whisk the cornstarch and club soda in a mixing bowl. In batches, dip the potatoes in the batter, allow any excess to drip off and hold on a wire rack. Repeat with rest of the potatoes.

Fry half the potatoes, stirring occasionally until golden brown and crispy, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the seasoning and hold in the oven on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the last batch of potatoes.
