New Use for Yogurt - Oven Fries with Curry Dipping Sauce

Though I enjoy having a Dannon Light & Fit here and there, I don't usually have a tub of yogurt in the house. I bought some non fat plain yogurt to use as a substitute in a sauce, and now I'm in looooove with it.

Here's something you MUST try:

Add a half cup of plain yogurt to a bowl. Mix in ground cumin, ginger, curry powder, a pinch of cayenne, salt, brown sugar, and a squeeze of mustard. Anything in the same family would really work here, this is just what I had around. Anyway, stir all this up and throw it in the fridge.

Make oven fries. Cut potatoes into fries (not too thick, not too thin, skins on - in my opinion!). Toss them with a little olive oil and whatever else you like (I used black pepper and dried rosemary). Lay them out in a single layer on a silpat-lined baking sheet. Throw into a hot-ish oven (400?) and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp on the bottom. Flip the fries and bake again until golden all over. Remove  from the oven and salt generously.

NOW, for the good part. Get that sauce out of the fridge and stir it around again. What you have here, friends, is a curry dipping sauce. A curry dipping sauce that will BLOW UR MIND when eaten with the oven fries you just made.

Go forth and make this immediately. Eat standing in your kitchen over the stove. A cold beer compliments it perfectly.

Wiki

Yogurt is a Superfood made from milk or cream that is fermented with live, active cultures. When sugars in milk are fermented, lactic acid is produced and reacts with milk protein to create a thickened texture and slightly sour taste. The live cultures at work in yogurt are the key to its health benefits, adding beneficial bacteria to the body that fights unhealthy bacteria that causes infection and disease. Good bacteria within the body also enables healthy, proper digestion and boosts the immune system.

Occasionally, commercial yogurt is heat-treated during fermentation--a process that kills active cultures and thus negates the growth of positive bacteria. Recently, the National Yogurt Association (NYA), a non-profit organization that sponsors research and promotion of yogurt's benefits, has created a "Live & Active Cultures" seal to notify the pubic of the most healthy forms of yogurt.
