Its rare that I am suggested to make something that even I feel like making.
So my good friend from twitter Maryum Reza aka Nazu aka @nazuksuretehaal on twitter told me that no one knows how to make cheese fries here which is sadly right.
RESTAURANT PEOPLE! DRIPPING MELTING CHEESE ON FRIES IS NOT CHEESE FRIES!!!
You have to make the cheese sauce separately which is very easy to make.
Sometimes I don't know why people do not use google or youtube because from making cheese sauce to building a house EVERYTHING is on the internet people.
Now let me teach you how to make 'em and please listen and look carefully.
3 good sized potatoes cut according to your own choice
4 table spoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of salt
For Cheese Sauce:
250 grams shredded yellow cheddar cheese
1.5 cup of milk
3 table spoon butter
1 teaspoon all purpose flour(optional)
100 gram of cream cheese
1 teaspoon garlic paste
salt as you like
If you are cutting potatoes yourself to make fries then you need to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to drain excess starch out.
If you have bought frozen fries like me then you just need to fry them.
Now comes the frying part.
You need to heat the oil on medium low in a non stick pan and fry the fries for 4-5 minutes. Then place them on a paper towel-lined plate. Let them cool down.
Then you need to turn up the heat to medium high and fry them for 2 minutes or until they are crisp brown. Again place them on a paper towel-lined plate.
Time to prepare the garlic cheese sauce.
Melt butter in a non stick pan and quickly whisk a teaspoon of all purpose flour. Cook it for a minute. If you add more flour than that then your sauce will get extra thick which is not good. If you are afraid of adding the flour then please don't. Save yourself.
Add the milk now and add a teaspoon of garlic paste with it as well. Add the cream cheese and stir until it is mixed.
As soon as the milk mixture boils add the shredded cheese and mix it until the mixture becomes thick. Add salt to bring some taste out but not too much salt than a teaspoon because as the mixture settles down it will have a very strong flavor of its own.
Sauce is ready steady now. All you have to do is put it on the fries and eat.
As this was Maryum's suggestion I am going to name this after her twitter handle.
Ladies and gentleman please show some love for Garlic Cheese Fries/Nazuk Suret e Haal.
