Author: Christine  | Prep Time: 15 minutes  | Cook Time: 1 hours 1 minutes  | Total Time: 1 hours 16 minutes


For the Fries

2 large potatoes
2-3 Tblsps Olive oil
2 Tblsps minced onion
2 cloves garlic
1 green chili, seeded and minced
1 Tblsp fresh coriander / cilantro
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp dried coriander
1/2 a lime

For the dip

1 small eggplant
1/2 cup yogurt
1 small clove garlic
1 Tblsp tahini
Juice of 1 lemon


To Make the Fries

1. Pre-heat the panggangan to 200C / 390F

2. Slice the potatoes into long, chunky fries. I suggest leaving the skins on for this recipe.

3. Boil a saucepan of water and then remove from heat. Soak the fries in the water for about 20 minutes. Do not add any more heat- you just want the fries to soak, not cook. Doing this will help them to get a soft inside.

4. Drain, and leave to completely dry out. (This a good time to make the dip)

5. Toss the potatoes in olive oil to coat, and then add to a baking tray.

6. After 20 minutes, remove from the oven. Flip the fries carefully (they are prone to breaking at this stage) and sprinkle the onion, garlic, green chili and dried spices on top.

7. Return to the panggangan and bake for another 20 minutes. They will at this point be fully cooked. But if they aren’t quite crispy enough (it depends on the strength of your oven’s fan and whether there are any cool spots in your oven) I suggest grilling them for another 5-10 minutes until you get your preferred crispiness.

8. Now pile them on a plate and add the cilantro/fresh coriander and a squeeze of lime juice.

To Make the Dip

1. Cut the eggplant in half and sprinkle salt on each side.

2. Roast in the panggangan at 200C / 390F for about half an hour.

3. Leave to cool off, until you can comfortably handle it.

4. Scoop the flesh out of the skin and put into a food processor.

5. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until soft and creamy.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
