Finger chips, also referred to as French fries or chips, are a popular snack and side dish made from potatoes. They are usually deep-fried, yielding a crispy exterior and a soft, creamy interior. They can be served as a standalone snack, often accompanied by ketchup or mayonnaise, or as a side with burgers, sandwiches and other dishes. Although they originated in Belgium, they are loved all around the world and are a very popular fast food item.
