  • Peel, wash, and cut the potatoes into French fries. I have used russet potatoes here which are the best variety for making french fries.
  • Soak the potato in water and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes (removes excess starch in potatoes). Drain the water well and lightly pat dry.
  • Mix cornstarch, black pepper, mint powder, chat masala, salt, red chili powder, and lemon juice together.
  • Sprinkle the spice mix over potatoes, toss well and make sure all the fries are covered with spices. Don't add any water.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
  • To check if the oil is ready, just put the potato strip in a frying pan. The potato should sizzle.
  • Fry the fries till they become gold in color all around, turn the fries a few times while frying.
  • Remove masala fries from oil and place on paper towel.
  • Serve hot and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce.



  • Serve Masala French Fries with your favorite dipping sauce like ketchup or mayonnaise. If you don't prefer sides then eat as it is.
  • You can also pair it with a burger or soup to make a meal.
