This indulgent comfort dish stems from the Canadian province of Québec, and it’s not all too easy to track down in India. So what makes it worth the hunt? In poutine, the chips are crunchy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside french fries, deep-fried to golden perfection and crispy enough to withstand lashings of typical favourites, but veggie options haven’t frowned upon either.
And the cheese. Cheese curds are the hallmark of a ‘proper’ poutine, and are essentially small, solidified balls of curdled milk. The taste is cheddar-esque — in fact they’re often produced during the cheddar-making process — but the texture is much lighter, more like mozzarella. Most importantly, these delicious savoury chunks won’t completely melt when faced with a tide of warm gravy.
