Recipe: Curried Plantain Fry – A Sweet & Tangy Side Dish

IMG_4384

By now I’m pretty sure your Barbecue grill has been getting a pretty good workout.
We all know that a deliciously grilled steak, juicy shrimp or rotisserie chicken is never the same without it’s sidekick, a perfectly matched side dish!
There are tons of yummy ideas, some of which are classic favourites like your good ol’ salads and potatoes but I’ve got something a little different that I think will tantalize your taste buds and pleasantly surprise your palette at how well it goes together with grilled meats (especially seafood!), transporting you to the streets and beaches of Goa, India.

Using Patak’s Vindaloo Paste combined with a few other spices and flavouring sweet plantains, my Curried Plantain Fry will be a great addition to your dinner table. Use as a side dish or canapé.
Enjoy with Sour Cream (which I love!) or Patak’s Major Grey Chutney. Delicious!

  3. 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  4. 1 tsp of Vindaloo Paste

      Hi Suzie!
      You should be able to find Asafoetida (also called Hing) in South Asian Grocers or the Asian aisle in your local grocers (if they carry).
      You can certainly omit this and it really won’t change up the taste too much.
