Curry Sauce with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Curry sauce with roasted sweet potatoes – you may not know it yet but it’s a match made in heaven!
Continuing our unofficial sauce series, today we’ve got a super easy curry dipping sauce inspired by one of my favorite bars in Austin. Yellow Jacket Social Club is your typical Austin bar – 90% outdoor space, 10% indoor space. The drinks are good and cheap, but the hidden gem there is the food. Specifically: sweet potatoes with curry sauce. Seriously people, I crave them all. the. time. As with my copycat Via Pizza, going there and eating their sweet potatoes is still best. (plus I have to do zero work. Or cleanup.) But on a Wednesday, when I’m craving crispy sweet potatoes with curry sauce, now I can make it in about 30 seconds flat.
I’m pretty sure the original sauce is mayo-based, which I try not to think about. I know I’m in the minority, but mayo grosses me out. The color, and the consistency, it’s just … ugh. So gross. So for my version I use lactose free yogurt (I buy Green Valley Organics brand). From there it’s really simple: add mustard, a big dose of curry powder, some salt, a tad of maple syrup if you’re so inclined. The trick is to make more than you think you’ll need – it disappears faster than you think! 😉
As you can see, we had salmon the night I took these pictures, so bonus: I’m including the recipe for that too! Usually when I decide to make these sweet potatoes for dinner, I’ll try to have whatever else I’m making match the flavors of the curry sauce. So a little curry powder of course and maybe some nutmeg & cinnamon to add a little something different!
Now I’m off to enjoy the long weekend – plans include relaxing, spending a lot of time not on the computer, maybe making strawberry shortcake, and definitely a margarita or two! Enjoy your weekends, whatever you’re up to!

Back when I lived in rural Arkansas, there was one good restaurant in town — a Mexican restaurant called El Rio Lindo. I only ever ordered one of two things there: chicken tacos, or chicken tortilla soup. The soup wasn’t even on their menu, but it was legendary for it’s deliciousness…
