Loved the taste (and so did my husband, the picky eater), but the fries were limp, as others also noted. The ones that were cut the thinnest approached crispness, so next time I will cut them matchstick size. The spice mixture was great, and I'll try it with other vegetables."

I've made this recipe more times than any of Aarti's other recipes, and it's been an all-around hit. I've made it both as written, and with dried cranberries substituted for the mango.

Very nice, flavorful recipe that I will make again. I usually don't rate recipes unless I make them exactly as written, but I did make two -- I think inconsequential -- changes in this one. I used ground bison rather than beef because it tastes almost the same and has lots less fat. Also, instead of using four quartered large pitas, I used eight halved...
