Masala cheesy fries

A while back I grabbed a packet of those thin fries Fysh loves, you know the kind they serve at McDonald’s? 

Well we both adore those cheesy fries from steers and wanted some but I don’t want to venture out and also cash, then I remembered the fries in the freezer and decided why not make our own! 

I posted a shot on instagram and everyone keeps on asking for the recipe so thought I’d share my twist on them :) 

The fries are easy, you pop them in a deep pan with hot oil or a deep fryer if you have one or the oven if you prefer. 
The cheese sauce is the part that needs a recipe though, generally I wing it because usually Fysh has eaten most of the cheese and not told me about it… Like today. 

But here’s the basic recipe that I work from if you’re the kind of person who needs measurements:

  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese 
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste (optional)
  • Spoon of garam masala (my secret ingredient in almost everything) 

Stir fast and well cause it’s lumpy and thickens quickly. Add milk if you need it a little smoother.
