Preparation steps


  • Fries


    Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Put the grill at the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


    Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the oil and mix well.


    Transfer the fries to the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.


    Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Sauce


    In a nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions, mix well to coat with butter and cook for 8 minutes without stirring.


    Stir the onions and continue cooking for 4 minutes.


    Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the chicken broth, cornstarch, soy sauce and garlic powder to completely dissolve the starch.


    Pour the liquid into the skillet and continue cooking for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, or until the sauce thickens.


    Transfer to an electric mixer and mix to obtain a smooth and homogeneous texture.




    Place fries in small bowls. Top with cheese curds then cover with hot sauce.


  • Line a large fine sieve with cheesecloth and place over a large bowl.


    Pour the yogurt into the sieve.


    Cover with paper towels or fold the cheesecloth over the yogurt. Drain in the refrigerator for 4 to 8 hours or until yogurt is firm. Discard the liquid, about 1/2 cup.


    Grate cucumber. In a bowl, combine the cucumber with the vinegar and salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Drain cucumber.


    In a bowl, combine drained yogurt, grated cucumber, garlic, oil, dill and mint. Mix vigorously. Season with salt and pepper.
