Crispy French Fries

Are you a fan of crispy French fries? These delicious and crispy fries are perfect as a starter or as a snack any time of day. Serve them up with a creamy soup or surprise your kids with this crispy treat! These double-fried French fries are soft and fluffy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. For an added burst of flavor, try dipping them in homemade mayo chili sauce or tomato ketchup.

To get your fries extra crispy, there are a few tips you can follow. Firstly, be sure to choose potatoes without any green patches, which can negatively affect both the taste and your stomach. Cut your potatoes lengthwise into 4 to 5 pieces, then cut each piece into thin sticks - the thinner the better!

Next, soak the potato strips in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes to remove excess starch and ensure crispiness. Once soaked, drain the water and pat the potato strips dry with kitchen towels.

Finally, heat enough oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. In batches of 3 to 4, fry the potato strips until soft. Remove and drain them on new dry paper towels. Once all the potatoes have been fried, turn the heat up and fry them again until golden and crispy. Another method to try is coating the strips in batter and frying them in hot oil until they turn a golden brown.

Enjoy these crispy fries as a snack or starter and let us know how it turns out!
