  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 12 cups canola oil
  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch-thick sticks and placed in cold water
  • Salt to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and thyme; cook 1 minute and stir into mayonnaise. Transfer aioli to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Wipe out skillet and add ketchup and curry. Bring to a simmer and cook 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until using.
  3. Heat canola oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot to 325 degrees . Rinse potatoes in a bowl filled with cold water until water is clear (which means the starch is gone). Transfer fries to paper-towel-lined baking sheets and pat dry with additional paper towels. In 4 batches, fry potatoes at 325 degrees for 5 minutes. (Make sure oil returns to 325 degrees before adding each batch.) Remove with a slotted spoon or mesh strainer to fresh paper-towel-lined baking sheets.
  4. Increase oil temp to 375 degrees . Again, in 4 batches, fry 3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove to baking sheets and sprinkle with salt. Serve hot with aioli and curry ketchup.
