DAY 13- Peri Peri Fries

Peri Peri in Swahili means Pepper Pepper!

In Spain and Portugal, the term traditionally referred to spicy sauces and chilli-based powders used in barbeques. However, over time, the term has become popular globally as a spice mix that is mixed with French fries.

The Peri Peri flavor gives a hot and tangy makeover to the French fries.
