Cheesy French Fries with Mayo

Cheesy French Fries is deep fried french fries topped with melting cheese seasoning with spices. This makes a wonderful snack at any time or if you want to enjoy a movie, dig into this sinful snack.

Kids love french fries and mostly I try making it at home when it is a small portion. Else I fall back on the frozen ones when it comes to serving a larger crowd. Even frying that becomes a huge task.

Making perfect french fries is not a hard thing, only you need to have the patience to do repeat frying. So when I make, I try and make a huge batch so that I can fry them at a later stage.

When we watch a movie at home, kids end up getting lays chips. Sometime back Konda wanted something cheesy and since I had these fried chips handy, I made this right away for her. I was inspired by the dish I had in a restaurant and had baked it the previous time I made it.

We are starting the BM#90, Week 3, where I will be sharing some Kid Friendly dishes for the Kid’s Delight event, guest hosted by Ritu themed on Movie Time Munchies
