Masala Fries
  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and cut into strips/fries (rinse the potato strips a couple of times to get rid of excess starch)
  • 2 tbsp margarine/butter
  • 1/2 tsp Tropical Heat paprika
  • 1 tsp salt(or to taste)
  • 2-3 tbsp ketchup/tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree/paste
  • 1 tsp Tropical Heat chilli powder (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp Tropical Heat garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Tropical Heat cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp Tropical Heat turmeric powder
  • 1 chopped green chillies
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Chopped coriander for garnishing
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Fry the chips twice - fry them the first time, then drain them from the oil, re-heat the oil and fry them again to make them extra crispy
  • In a pan, heat the margarine/butter. When it melts, turn off the heat, add the paprika, salt, red chilli powder, garlic paste, tomato paste/puree and ketchup/tomato sauce or chilli sauce if you prefer them extra hot.
  • You can also add a little bit of any other spice like cumin powder or turmeric to play around with the flavour. To make it extra hot, add chopped chillies or red chilli flakes.
  • Turn on the heat again and cook these ingredients until they are well combined and starting to thicken - add a splash of water if you prefer your chips saucy.
  • Turn down the heat to low and put in your chips. Toss them around so that they are properly covered in sauce/masala.
  • Turn off the heat and squeeze in half a lemon and garnish with coriander, and you can now enjoy you masala fries.
