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.

Low Fat Fries make a truly wonderful combination for Whole Wheat Vegetable Burger and Nutritious Paneer Tikki Burger or any other Burger .
