Oven baked Fries

Here's our attempt at the king of all fast food - French Fries in a non convention style. Baked to perfection with a subtle hint of garlic and chilli makes these the easiest comfort food without a big guilt of eating unhealthy.

Ingredients
Potato (cut into strips): 1
Salt to taste
Pepper powder to taste
Garlic powder (optional): 1/2 teaspoon
Chilli powder/flakes: 1/2 teaspoon
Olive Oil: 2-3 tablespoons

*We have used a slightly different chilli powder i.e, Mexican chilli powder

Peel the potatoes and cut it into thin strips. Sprinkle salt, garlic powder, pepper, chilli powder and drizzle olive oil generously. Preheat the oven at 450° F and bake the potato till it gets crisp. Take off from the oven and eat them hot. Important note is that these fries lose all the charm when you have it after its cooled down.

We are sending this recipe to Healthy fast food event hosted by food for 7 stages of life and Sudeshna’s Cook like a bong.
