Ever since I started making masala chips, I was sold out to this brilliant art of transforming ordinary looking fries into something so yummy! It’s another way of feeling as though you have eaten the healthier version of deep-fried fries, yeh! but we all have lies we tell ourselves. So today I share with you the procedure or ‘the recipe’, as per my kitchen adventures. Remember am still not into this ingredient thing because I rarely follow them to par, but let your kitchen instincts urge you on. I still cannot remember what I cooked on the side but am sure it was chicken marinated in something like;
-Soy Sauce – A little Paprika
Well that’s as far as my memory can take me, but there are basic ingredients to marinate chicken (I will be sure to share them soon). But hey life is short experiment as much as you wish.
- potatoes cut into fries
- onions, sliced long
- fresh tomatoes, crushed)
- cloves of garlic
- chilli powder
- salt to taste
- tomato ketchup
- Coriander, chopped
- Lemon Juice
- Oil to fry chips
- A few tbsp of oil or Butter
- Heat oil in pan and cook fries in bunches depending on quantity you have to avoid them getting soggy, put aside preferably on paper towels so the excess oil is socked up
- Crush the garlic very finely
- Add the chilli powder and salt into the garlic mix to make a paste.
- If you like your food spicy, go heavy on the garlic and chilli powder.
- Add oil or butter in a pan and fry the onions till they are softened and very slightly browned.
- Add the garlic chilli powder salt paste made in step 3 and stir for about a minute so the spices cook and their flavor is drown out by the heat
- Add the tomatoes and turn to medium heat; stir constantly for about 10 minutes or until the tomatoes are cooked forming a thick paste.
- Add the tomato ketchup and stir.
- Add the fries, turn the heat down and mix thoroughly but not so much until the fries start breaking apart.
- Add as much coriander as you wish and garnish with lemon juice.
- Leave for about 10 minutes and you are good to go!
