What’s that one thing that kept us all going during the months-long lockdown due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic? Cooking will surely be one of the most common replies for all. It was one of the major modes of entertainment for all. From cooking the regular dishes with bare minimum ingredients for everyday consumption to making the most exotic recipe to compensate for restaurant visits – we explored our creative-selves to the fullest. While some were seen preparing golgappa and dahi bhalla from the scratch, others prepared cheese-burst pizza, burgers (including the patty) etc. at home.
Although the nation is on an unlock spree and we are adapting to the new normal life, many of us are still avoiding eating foods from outside (as a precautionary measure). Instead, we all have continued whipping our favourite dishes at home till date.
Here’s a quick and easy recipe of French fries that will instantly remind you of your favourite fast-food joint in the city. It’s the very popular peri peri fries. Made with potatoes and a special masala, a bowl of peri peri fries can make anyone slurp any time of the day. For the uninitiated, the name came from the peri peri chillies of Africa. A quintessential peri peri fries include spice-mix made with this African chilli. However, with time and convenience, we have replaced peri peri chillies with normal chilli powder and chilli flakes in the recipe.
All you need to do is deep fry some potatoes strips and sprinkle a spice-mix on it. This spice-mix generally includes ginger powder, cinnamon powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, oregano, salt, coriander powder, black pepper powder, red chilli flakes and powdered sugar.
