This is your chance to switch up your regular fries to something a little more exciting. These yucca fries are incredibly creamy on the inside and extra crispy on the outside. Try them with any number of fun dips.
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the yucca and cook over medium-low heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let sit until the wedges are no longer steaming. Discard any stringy pieces.
Meanwhile, combine the cilantro, turmeric, cumin and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.
Put the oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot. Heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 400 degrees F.
Working in batches (don’t crowd the pot), fry the yucca, flipping midway, until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon; add to the bowl with the cilantro mixture and toss. (You can also drain the fries on paper towels and sprinkle with the cilantro mixture.)
