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 .
- Combine the potatoes and enough water in a deep non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain well and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the potato fingers and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes, while tossing occasionally.
- Add the chilli powder, cumin seeds powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve immediately.
