Try replacing potato fries with these taro fries and impress the family. They are similar in taste, but slightly more exotic. The spicy sriracha ketchup kicks it up a notch and would be excellent with a bahn mi.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large taro root
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 drop chili oil
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 drop chili oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wash and peel the taro root and slice it into thin strips.
  3. In a bowl combine the vegetable oil, sesame oil and one drop of chili oil. Toss the taro strips in the oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place the taro strips on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the taro fries and bake for an additional 10 minutes until golden and crispy.
  5. In a small bowl combine ketchup, sriracha, and one drop of chili oil. Whisk the ingredients to combine.
  6. Serve the taro fries warm with sriracha ketchup.

Note: Never eat taro root raw as it is toxic when uncooked.

I was just going to say what Jessica said - Elephant Bar has a really good ketchup and I think they do put sriracha in it.

Sriracha ketchup??? That sounds absolutely incredible. I love Elephant Bar and more specifically they're ketchup...after reading this article I'm 99% sure it's sriracha ketchup that they're making. Yay now I can make it myself! Thanks!
