Doesn’t potato make everything right? From a simple snack to a midnight meal, whether it’s a boring curry or a sizzling chaat, and how can we forget the mighty burgers, potato is easily one of the most loved vegetables around the world. They are also included in most comfort foods and why not? They can be paired with innumerable dishes. Fried, boiled, baked or sauteed, potatoes will never disappoint the food lover in you. French fries are one potato dish that nobody can ever deny. Even the strictest of dieters can go weak in the knees at the sight of these crispy treats. Enjoyed by people of all ages, lightly salted French fries are best for your evening binge, game or movie night and casual munching between work breaks. While they are starchy and fattening too, but who says you cannot enjoy them once in a while?  

If you are a fan of fries, it is time to move beyond the classic salted fries to experiment with some more flavours. Here are 4 types of French fries you must try at home:

1. Chilli Cheese Fries

Perhaps one of the easiest and quickest versions of fries you can make. Simply pile the fries in the middle of a baking sheet, top it with chilli, sprinkle with cheddar cheese and place under broiler for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese melts. You are about to slip into food coma.

2. Zucchini Fries

Move over fried potato and choose a healthier alternative with zucchini. Oven-baked, breaded zucchini strips make for an ideal snack that you won’t stop bingeing.

3. Butter Chicken Fries

Trust Indians to give their own spin to just about anything and well, most of the times you won’t be disappointed. Just like in the case of butter chicken fries. Got some butter chicken gravy leftover from last night? Toss some in your fries and you have a snack that is sure to please a crowd.

4. Per Peri Fries

Spicy, flavoursome and perfect to get your gasping for air, peri peri mix is all that and more! This popular spin can bring your boring fries to life. You simply need to add some smoked paprika, dried coriander, oregano, chilli flakes, salt and others seasonings of your choice to make it your way. Sprinkle some over a plate of fries and voila.
