I have had plenty of cheese in my fridge this past month! For some reason, I kept buying some and I ended up with a surplus. Now honey, cheese can be pretty pricey, and because I did not want mine to go to waste, I am using it in many dishes. The first was these cheesy meat pies we had a few weeks back and today we are making some masala fries but not just any masala fries, but loaded, cheesy melty masala fries. We have made honey whiskey masala fries as well as these perfect rosemary garlic masala fries and today we take things up a notch and introduce this cheesy indulgent beaut!
To my foreign readers, masala fries are smothered fries very common in Kenya and I think through out the East African region. At their essence, the fries are cooked then coated in a hot, spicy sauce and there are many renditions on the same. We have done a couple, today we are adding another one and for sure, plenty more shall be coming in the future!
Today is such a gorgeous day, isn’t it? I am typing this as I sit by the window with the bright, warm morning rays on my legs. I am looking at the jacaranda tree outside, whose flowers have just bloomed, and part of why October in Nairobi is always so so beautiful. I am typing this as I watch The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, which has been part of my nightly routine, but just now decided to squeeze in one episode before I wrap up this post and head off to work on November’s recipes. Weren’t the cartoons us 90’s babies grew up on the real deal? I mean we were served with such delicious variety and I just can’t help but re-live all of them! Power Puff Girls, Courage The Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Dexter’s Lab… I mean those were real cartoons! And I have to say, I will always love them, and I refuse to ‘grow up’ coz the heart likes what it likes y’all!
Speaking about good things, today’s recipe is among those that will always be in vogue. Always delicious. Ever so versatile! And an eternal classic!. I loved making these masala fries recipe and hope you love this one as much as I do!
If you love potatoes, you know very well when that craving (or should I say Kraving;))) kicks in, you just cannot shut it down! It is like that itch that you just cannot ignore, or satisfy by scratching indirectly. You have to go all in and satisfy it. When I had one of such kravings a few weeks ago, I decided to make fries. I rarely eat fries, but when I do, especially at home, I like to make it worth while and usually, that involves making masala fries. Including this one, so far as at 2017 we ahve three masala fries recipes on this blog. I made this first masala fries recipe in 2015 (check it out if you have not and please forgive my photography skills back then I was struggling :DD), this other one that everyone loves that has garlic and rosemary as the main flavor notes and today’s recipe takes it all to a stratospheric level!! No mediocre! Because as you know you know, with K, things are always FIRE!!
Today we have the most perfect Friday/ weekend recipe: Honey Whiskey Masala Fries
I am not such a big fan of junk food as I highlighted in this post not too long ago. But in all honesty, I find it so hard to turn down a good plate of masala fries. And I guess these garlic masala fries have to be the only exception. Fries have become quite common in Kenya over the past decade and different ways to have them have come up with time. I first heard of masala fries from my eldest sister while I was still in boarding school and the name alone made my mouth water. I vowed to have a taste of them as soon as my holiday begun. With some of my savings at hand, I made my way to Wimpy and bought some. I was not disappointed!
Today I made masala fries, but added my little twist to them, as usual! I added plenty of garlic which brought out the taste of the chilli so well and added to the juiciness of the masala sauce. These garlic masala fries iare a must try for all my readers.
