Chili Garlic Fries

Nuvita Biscuits

An exotic accompaniment that can add zing even to the plainest of burgers, it is the smart use of melted butter and chopped garlic that sets the chilli garlic fries apart from regular french fries. Sprinkle the chilli powder and butter-garlic mixture on the fries immediately after deep-frying and toss it well so that it coats the fries well from all sides. And… get ready for a real feast!


4 potatoes , peeled and cut into fingers
salt to taste
1 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped garlic (lehsun)
oil for deep-frying
1/2 tsp chilli powder


  1. Boil a vesselful of water with a little salt. Add the potato fingers and parboil them for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Heat the butter in small kadhai, add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Keep aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a kadhai, and deep-fry a few potato fingers at a time on a medium flame till they turn crisp and golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  4. Drain on absorbent paper, pour the butter-garlic mixture and sprinkle the chilli powder over it and toss gently.
  5. Serve immediately.

    Love chili…but can’t seem to get it right when I try to make it. Only like home-made, not store bought. I do like Steak n’ Shake chili in the restaurants, and also Bob Evans chili in the restaurants…so that will give you an idea of what kind I am looking for. Any and all recipes will be appreciated.

    Kimberli, I recall mom par boiling first, but my other 1/2 just peeled and sliced over the skillet.

    I love kung pao and other spicy dishes with lots of veggies and some chicken. We’d like to make it at home, but there’s no ethnic grocers near us. Anyone know a good online store with reasonable shipping where we can order a quality spicy sauce for making stir fry? Also, if anyone knows a fairly simple recipe to make a good sauce in bulk at home, that would be great. Thanks.

    I am trying to make my own Falafel, but all the recipes I have seen seem to suggest that you deep fry the patties/balls in a couple of inches of oil. Is there a healthier alternative method, eg. can you grill them or bake them and still get similar results?

    My friend and I usually go to this chinese restaurant that has gai lan with garlic sauce. It’s tasty and much lighter than gai lan with oyster sauce. Do anybody know the recipe to gai lan with garlic sauce?

    Last night I made a chicken, broccoli, and mushroom stir fry and it was sooo delicious! It was better than any i’ve had in a restaurant, fooIt was the first time i’ve ever made one because it always seemed overwhelming to me, probably because of the unfamiliar asian ingredients. So how do you make your favorite?

    I love to buy stir-fried broccoli and tofu, but buying the products from the market would be cheaper.

    I’m using store bought regular fries but I want them to taste like seasoned french fries.
    If you have recipes using raw potatoes, please give them to me. I have a few raw potatoes in my refrigerator

    I’ve had some fries baking in my toaster oven for about half an hour or so and they still haven’t turned brown.Some of them are beginning to turn golden brown but how much longer do you think it’ll take for them to turn golden brown and crispy? I have the temperature at 425 degrees farenheit .

    I just raised the temperature to 45o degrees

    I lightly browned some garlic in evoo, strained, poured over red potato french fries, and baked. I then tossed with the strained garlic and parsley.

    What would be a good dip I could quickly make for these?
    Not at all – Honey sounds YUMMY!

    I have a large quantity and a lot of different varieties of chili peppers that I would like to put to good use from my garden. I have the hottest varieties, habanero, to the mildest, gypsy peppers. I would appreciate any pepper recipes. 10 points for the best recipe and all the peppers you can use.
    By the way I like personal or family recipes better than anything out of a book.

    I have a love for chicken and i preferably like fried, but i never get it the way i want it to. I’ve searched for a lot of fried chicken recipes, but i don’t know what to believe, some say use buttermilk and whole lot of other stuff. So my question is, how do you make good southern fried chicken? I would really appreciate a good recipe.

    There is a restaurant in St. Louis called “King and I” – it is the #1 Thai place in town. They have a dish called ‘Pad Spicy’ that is awesome. The menu description is: Stir Fried meat, bell pepper, basil leaves, with touch of ground fresh chili, garlic and wine…

    Sounds easy right? Not so much – I have searched for other recipes like this – but searching for ‘Pad Spicy’ on the web doesn’t bring up anything useful.

    Has anyone ever been there and copied their recipe for Pad Spicy ? The ‘pad’ part can be either beef chicken or pork.

    Uhh- I think you gave me a recipe for a pillow or something. While it looks interesting, not exactly something I would eat for dinner :)

    I adore lamb(keema) curry from a takeaway-but would love to be able to make my own- I know that for the base you must fry off onions and then cook the masala(chili,garlic,ginger,cumin,turmeric,etc) until the spices are cooked-but I can never get the taste right-do they just put a load of oil in it to add flavour?Also how do you make chicken Chaat?
    Thanks,all help gratefully recieved

    Chinese Cabbage, also known as Napa, I’d like a versatile stir-fry recipe that uses a fair amount of Chinese cabbage and other vegetables.
