Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C, and put 2 baking trays inside to heat up.
  2. Cut the carrots into long, even fries about 1cm thick. Trim any very thin ends, as they can burn during cooking (see tip, above). Transfer to a large mixing bowl and toss to coat in the oil. Sprinkle over the cornfour and toss again.
  3. Arrange the fries evenly over the hot trays. Bake for 25-30 mins, turning halfway, until crispy and browned in places; season. 
  4. Meanwhile, put the yogurt in a bowl and stir through the coriander, lemon zest and a squeeze of juice; season. Serve with the carrot fries for dipping.

Tip: Leftover carrot tops, trimmings, peelings and leaves can be used to flavour stocks. Wash and dry them, then simmer with the other stock ingredients. Allow to cool in the stock before straining out.
