Make the sweet potato fries
Preheat the oven to 400° F. (If you’re baking in the oven. No need to preheat the air fryer.)
Cut your sweet potatoes into about 1/4" sticks. They should be about as wide around as your pinky, but longer is fine.
Arrange the sweet potato slices on a cookie sheet, and drizzle 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over them. Sprinkle on the curry powder, coriander, and sea salt. Toss them well to coat them in the oil, spices, and salt, adding the rest of the oil, if necessary.
Oven Directions: Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes so they cook evenly. When they look brown and a little crispy, they’re done.
Air Fryer Directions: Transfer the sweet potato fries to your air fryer basket. Cook at 370F for 25 minutes, shaking every 8 minutes. If needed, you can add a few minutes of cooking time to the end, depending on the size that you cut your sweet potatoes.
