Curry Fries With Coconut Lime Dip | EASY VEGAN MUNCHIES

curry fries with coconut lime dip RECIPEThese tasty Curry fries make a wonderful accompaniment to any entree. Both the fries themselves and the coconut lime dip take just a few minutes whip up. My love affair with curry is an ongoing saga. I have tried to curry almost everything. I don’t know if it’s my love for the creamy-spicy flavor combination, or the excessive use of such an amazing array of ingredients; but, just like they say in the song—I just can’t get enough…

vegan curry fries recipeThere is this great little falafel place down the street from me; after a long day of shooting, and no energy to cook, and I often pop in and pick up a big bag of their curry fries and a couple falafels and hummus to dip. It’s exactly the kind of comfort food I need after such a long day. One Sunday, after a 7 hour recipe prep-stint, I put on my boots, hat and scarf (as Canadians do) and made the infamous walk to my favourite falafel spot…only to see that they has closed early! As quick as the disappointment overcame me, I realized with much jubilation that I had a bag of frozen fries in my freezer, and a brand new jar of curry powder in my pantry, just waiting to be used.

…and that is how this recipe came to exist! These fries are deliciously crispy and oven baked, so you can eat them to your heart’s desire. The mix of aromatic spices give this dish a haute-cuisine feel and taste without too much effort. The coconut lime sauce is a wonderful cool balance to the hint of kick these fries have.

Expect yellow curry fingers for a few hours after munching away on these guys– a small price to pay for a snack this tasty!

Ingredients
Instructions
Preheat your oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with parchment.
If you're using store bought fries:
  1. Toss frozen fries with coconut oil, salt, curry powder, and coriander, and arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Bake them for about 20 minutes, turning them halfway through, and until all fries are golden brown.
  3. Remove from baking sheet and sprinkle with some cayenne pepper and additional curry powder to taste.
If you're using potatoes:
  1. Place matchsticks in a large bowl and add cool water to cover completely.
  2. Toss the potatoes and let sit for 5 mins.
  3. Then drain the potatoes and "wash" with cold water. This will remove some of the starch.
