Sweet potato fries are a delicious and healthy alternative to regular fries, with a slightly sweeter flavor and a crisp texture. These fried potatoes acquire an extraordinary flavor when paired with mayonnaise and 'Rose Harissa' paste. The cool and creamy texture of the mayo complements the crispy texture of the fries, while the tangy flavor of the mayo balances out the sweetness of the potatoes. A different dimension of flavor is added by adding rose harissa to the mayonnaise and seasoning the fried sweet potatoes with sumac.


One of the things that makes sweet potato fries so delicious is the caramelization that occurs when they are cooked. This natural process happens when the natural sugars in the sweet potatoes are exposed to heat, causing them to brown and develop a rich, sweet flavor.


When the fries are cooked to perfection, they should be a beautiful deep golden-brown color and have a slightly crunchy texture on the outside, with a soft and tender interior.


The combination of the sweet and salty fries with the rich and creamy mayonnaise creates a perfect balance of flavors and textures that will satisfy any craving for a delicious and satisfying snack or side dish.

What is a Rose Harissa?

Rose harissa is a North African spice blend. The name Harissa comes from the Arabic harasa, meaning ‘to pound’ or ‘break into pieces'.


Rose Harissa has a slow-burning chilli heat, balanced with sweet smokiness that adds real depth of flavour to any dish.


This spice blend typically includes hot chili peppers, garlic, caraway, coriander, cumin, and rose petals. The spice blend adds a smoky, slightly sweet and floral flavor to the dish.


When combined with the sweetness of the sweet potato fries and the creaminess of the mayonnaise, the rose harissa provides a nice balance of flavors. The spiciness of the harissa adds a pleasant kick to the dish, while the rose petals provide a unique floral note that is not usually found in traditional spice blends.
