The otherwise simple french fries takes on a very zingy feel when tossed with a horde of indian masalas like chilli powder, cumin seeds powder, salt and black salt, making it a truly wonderful combination for burgers. Always deep-fry french fries on a medium flame as too slow a flame will make them soggy while a high flame will not cook uniformly.
