Ingredients

  • 1 30- ounce bag frozen thin-cut french fries
  • 4 tablespoons Japanese curry base , preferably homemade (see below)
  • 3 cups stock
  • 2 piece handfuls shredded mild white cheese , like Monterey jack
  • 1-2 piece eggs per person , fried over easy
  • 2 piece green onions , sliced thin
  • 1 piece grape tomatoes , halved, optional, to serve
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds , optional, to serve
  • 1 tbsp togarashi , optional, to serve
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. If making homemade Japanese curry base: melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. When butter is totally melted, sprinkle flour over. Stir to combine. Keep stirring as the roux will burn easily. After about 20-30 minutes, the roux will be a beautiful golden brown color. Stir in the spices and whisk to combine. Cook for 30 seconds and remove from heat. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  2. To make curry fries:
  3. Preheat oven and cook fries according to package directions. Meanwhile, make curry sauce. In a medium saucepan over low heat, whisk together curry base and stock. Once well-combined, bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until a bit thickened, a few minutes. Once thickened, stir in a couple handfuls of shredded white cheese. Place cooked fries in serving dish, followed by eggs, then curry sauce.

Recipe Notes

Sprinkle with green onions to serve, and optional grape tomatoes, sesame seeds, and togarashi. Dee-vour.
