MoFo #20: Chip Shop Curry Dip

Today's dip actually has a story!

Chip Shop Curry dip

A million years ago, in early 2009, J and I celebrated our honeymoon (a year late) by going to the UK for 2 weeks.  We spent the second week in a self-catering cottage in the middle of nowhere in Wales, eating Alpro soya yogurt, "bacon" Cheezly sandwiches, and all the other weird vegan food we could find in the shops there.  We took a daytrip to Cardiff and found a lovely vegan Indian restaurant, and we took a daytrip to Swansea and I nearly died of starvation.  Nearly.

Luckily, we found a chips vendor, selling fries.  In a paper cone.  With vegan-friendly curry.  Fries in a paper cone with curry on top!  This is basically my dream food, and also, I was so damn hungry. 

I've meant to look it up literally for years, and I finally did it for MoFo.  Woohoo!  I didn't make fries in a paper cone to go with it, but I did make baked sweet potato fries.  And since I had the oven on anyway, roasted broccoli and tofu too:

Well-received by all. 

By the way, the Magician is 9 months old today.  Woohoo!  Here he is with his brother and his father this morning:

So many men

Wait! No recipe?! Or should I just make my own favorite curry sauce? Help! :)

I used this recipe with a few small tweaks:

Veg broth instead of the water and 2 tsps of cornstarch added (mixed with 2 tbsps of cold water and then whisked into the main pot)... it wasn't thickening enough with just the flour.
