The Sun may rise in the west but Fries cannot be low-fat; that is what many people think! Sshh… we will tell you a secret today, so you can savour French fries occasionally without adding too many inches to your waistline. With a bit of patience, and just two teaspoons of oil, you can make Low-Fat Fries, which when served with a sprinkling of chilli and cumin seeds powder tastes even better than the original! But, do hold your horses and have small portions because potato is still a starchy nightmare.
