If you ever end up in India, you’ll find Indo-Chinese food being sold in every other street. Somewhat Chinese-influenced food is heavily based on Indian spices. I didn't know what authentic Chinese food was like when I came to the US until I started going to China town for grocery shopping after watching hundreds of episodes of “ The Food Ranger” on youtube. The sauce I made for this recipe is Indian influenced Chinese sauce which I learned cooking back home during my high school years for my Indo-Chinese food cravings ??. The combination of crispy potato fries and slightly tangy and spicy sauce makes this recipe so darn delicious. This side dish is sure to please the Indian-Chinese food lovers. —FeastwithSafiya
