Poutine ( With Bechamel sauce ) | Poutine with White Gravy | Combo Dishes ~ Day 2

Canadian snacks recipes

French fries have been my fav always ,and whenever we go out back in US we had this only dish as a option which is veg for snack time. I love fries a lot I had tried my hand in making home made fries many times and love them. Thinking of day 2 combo dish I wanted to keep it simple , then I remembered this dish in my visit to canada where I found this dish which very famous canadian dish but to my bad luck it had this non veg gravy added to it . Yeah am talking about Poutine especially the potato poutine which is originally served with brown sauce which contain flour and beef and chicken stock but I seen so many variation of poutine sauce they make from which I chose to make Bechamel sauce as gravy , I know it is not the traditional brown gravy but some store in canada do serve poutine with white sauce so I opted for white sauce instead of making the brown sauce with vegetable stock and substituting with vegetable broth for the gravy. I know the combination is weird but I liked them much. This dish might not give thumbs up from everyone as you know everyone have their own sense of tastebuds , am posting this for those who madly love french fries in any form like me.

I have been more active in Instagram and fb than here on blog for past months and I seriously enjoyed photography will share few of my photographs I took in my leisure here .. I have already shared this picture of mine in FB and insta. Do follow me in insta for regular updates pics and videos  , it just take minutes for me to share pics where us when it comes to blogging 24 hours is not enough. Ok now coming to the pics I love photographing flowers , few weeks back on my birthday my bro surprised me with the bunch of flowers which contained white and pink ones. I wanted to capture those flowers and keep them with me forever before they dried up so I thought of plucking they and doing some fun with photography here are those pics.

So here I present my version of Poutine with white sauce / Bechamel sauce which I liked a lot . Serve the fry and sauce hot /warm so that it is enjoyed thoroughly.  Traditionally / Authentic poutine which is made with brown gravy is also topped with cheese curds to make it extra rich. Now moving on to my version of Poutine.
