1 cup chicken stock cube
2 green bell peppers, chopped, optional

Deep-fry or oven bake french fries until golden brown and crispy.
To make sauce, heat oil in a wok or deep pan on a medium to high heat.

Add ketchup, chili sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, and chicken stock cube; cook for another 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
Now add french fries and green bell peppers (if using). Mix well and check for salt. Season if required. Cook for 30 seconds more. This dish should have almost no gravy, just a coating sauce. If it is too dry, add 1/4 cup of water and mix well.
