French Fries is crispy fries or finger chips that can be made at home easily. The sliced potatoes are deep-fried till they’re crisp on all sides and then sprinkled with salt, pepper or really any seasoning of your choice.
How to make French Fries
- Step 1 –
To prepare this easy recipe, you need to make sure that they are cut in right shape and size. They should neither be too thick, nor too thin and should be cut clean and sharp. The trick is to first slice the potatoes and then cut them lengthwise. You can also use a fries cutter for that long, even shape.
- Step 2 –
Now, wash the potatoes under running water till they are squeaky clean. Place them in a bowl of iced water for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep them submerged in water or they will turn black.
- Step 3 –
Now heat the oil in a deep bottomed pan. Once the smoke starts appearing, reduce the flame and allow it to acquire a lower temperature. Now, deep fry the potatoes in batches. Keep the flame low. This will make them crunchy and also help retain their colour.
- Step 4 –
Drain excess oil and place on an absorbent paper. Allow to cool. Now sprinkle salt and pepper and toss well. Serve immediately with ketchup. They can also be served with burgers and cutlets. They replace carbs in most continental meals. You can pack them for your kids lunch.
