Author Notes: Indian and Mexican cuisines are close in a lot of ways. When I first came to the US, I missed the spice factor the most. I could barely eat in any of the restaurants except Indian. I remember living on Fries in grad school and on lemonade every where I went. Eventually, Italian became one of my favorite cuisines. That said, I still love the heat. I can put crushed red pepper flakes in pretty much all the foods. Mexican food is the next best option when I dont want to cook Indian food at home. This is an inspiration from 'On the Border' Mexican grill. They serve these fries in a margarita glass served alongside their sauce. I serve these fries with a Southwestern Ranch dressing. —Shri
