The all-time favourite classic salted fries have been given an innovative spin over the years, which resulted in the creation of a dedicated fries section running into pages on menus at restaurants.
French Fries are one of the most loved and relished comfort foods, and can be served as an evening snack, a starter or a side dish to burgers and pizzas.
But, gone are the days when they were served as a sidekick to your main dish. Here’s a list of dishes that are quintessentially fries but with an added contemporary take on them.
What is better than fries and pizza together? Cafes in Delhi are offering this fusion in its most delicious form. You no longer need to order them separately to satisfy your cheesy needs and crunchy French fry cravings.

Fries for dessert
While we all know fries as a savoury food item, introducing them into the dessert menu is new – yet delicious! Topping of chocolate syrup, ice cream or caramel sauce on a bed of fries makes a perfect blend of hot and sweet.
Even McDonald’s followed the trend by introducing Japan’s exclusive McChoco Potato in India, where the potato fries were covered with dark and white chocolate sauce.
Served in a bowl, this dish is surrounded by French fries and loaded with different types of gravies. It is inspired by poutine, a French-Canadian dish that consists of fries, gravy, and cheese curds. From satisfying your Italian cravings with pasta sauce fries, to keeping it simply Indian with Dal Makhani and Butter Chicken fries, there’s something for everyone’s taste buds.

A shift from unhealthy fries
The deep-fried potatoes are a universal guilty pleasure and supremely satisfying. However, it isn’t healthy to eat them especially in today’s world of deteriorating lifestyle. There’s a high content of sodium and fats in fries.
However, fries fanatics can relax because turning the fried favourite into a healthy side dish is easier than you might think. A healthy alternative to it is baked sweet potato fries or simply using an air-fryer. An air-fryer helps to create your favourite bowl of fries sans oil.
