I love French fries and our friend at Finely Chopped, was kind enough to write me a recipe for Goan Chilly Fries. He gave me some choices so here’s exactly how I made it.

  • vegetable oil to coat the wok
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper, by mortar and pestal
  • salt to taste
  • 4 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
  • Fresh, hot fries!

1. Heat a wok with just enough oil to coat it.
2. Saute the onion until softened just a little. Add the tomatoes.
3. Add the ground beef, chili powder, garam masala, black pepper, and salt. Saute until most of the pink meat has turned brown.
3. Add the vinegar and let it cook on medium-high heat until most of the liquid has evaporated.
4. Add the ketchup, bell peppers, and jalapeno, cooking for 1 more minute.
5. Serve on top of freshly made French fries and garnish with cilantro.

A little sweet, a bit acidic, a little spicy, and so aromatic. So many playful flavors danced in my mouth. I loved it. You do have to eat it quickly though, before the fries get soggy, but the topping would be great on rice or a flatbread as well. Thanks for the great recipe!
