French fries are a popular snack in many parts of the world, but the condiments that are served with them can vary from region to region. In Ireland, French fries are often served with curry-flavored ketchup, and the combo is known as curry fries. Curry, of course, is a common spice blend that originated in India.

      Hi Liz,

      I actually tasted my first curry fries in Belgium. I enjoyed it a lot that's why I tried to recreate this dish.

      Chips and curry are a popular dish in some parts of the UK. It's good to know from your recipe how to make it.

      If I keep reading your great recipes, I will put on a ton of weight --- but it will be worth it.
