PAPRIKA CUMIN KENYAN CHIPS MASALA

I love! Love! Love! Chips Masala, which is my other favourite dish that brings me awesome childhood memories. We had several kiosks in our neighbourhood where you could get what we called “chips mwitu” (not restaurant chips) these fries were very delicious and sold for as little as Ksh. 10 ($1) per packet. By the time you are done eating you’d have spent up to Ksh. 100 ($10) because they are just too addictive! There are very few restaurants that I trust to cook the best chips masala/masala chips. I love my homemade version because you can add whatever spices you want! I love spicy food so this recipe is quite spicy, which I love, you can have more or less spice as you want.
