Garlic Cheese French Fries

Sneha Paul


  • 400 g french fries frozen
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup processed cheese grated
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 tbsp fried garlic for garnishing


To make crispy french fries:

  • Pour sufficient oil into a pot for deep frying and heat it over a high flame.
  • Once it heats up, lower the flame to medium and carefully add the first batch of french fries (make sure you are not overcrowding the pot). Deep fry for a few minutes until they become golden brown and crisp.
  • Take them out and transfer them to a plate lined with absorbent paper.
  • Then increase the flame to high and let the oil heat up. After that reduce the flame to medium and add the second batch of fries. Cook them the same way then take them out.
  • Keep frying the french fries in small batches until all the fries are cooked. Place them aside to cool down.

To make the cheese sauce:

  • Heat a pot over medium flame. Add butter and allow it to melt completely.
  • Add all-purpose flour and keep stirring until there are no lumps or patches of dry flour.
  • Let it cook for a couple of seconds until it starts bubbling and is fragrant (raw flour smell is gone).
  • Note: In the video, I poured the milk after this and forgot to add the seasoning first. But you should not make this mistake. Because if you add the seasonings later on then it will create lumps in the sauce and it will be difficult to mix. But if you cook the powdered spices in the butter then they won’t form lumps.
  • After cooking the flour, lower the flame and add salt, red chilli powder, garlic powder and onion powder. Give it a good stir and cook for a few seconds. Make sure you don’t burn the spices.
  • Pour milk and keep stirring until the sauce is smooth and there are no lumps. Bring it to a boil. Once it starts becoming thick, turn the flame off.
  • Then add grated cheese and keep stirring until the cheese has completely melted.
  • Sauce Tip: Want to use the sauce later on? Then pour it in a bowl or tray and cover it with wax or baking paper (directly touching the sauce). This will prevent the formation of skin over the sauce. If you don’t have wax paper, then pour a thin layer of milk or spread 1 tsp butter over the surface of the sauce. Once it cools down, cover it with a lid and refrigerate.

To make the cheesy fries:

  • Add the cooked french fries into the cheese sauce. Stir gently to coat all the fries with the sauce.
  • Transfer the fries to the serving plate. Sprinkle fried garlic over it and serve hot!
