Crispy French Fries

Millionaires have been made and millions more have died from dependence on the simple, innocent potato. It reached its crowning achievement only once it had been paired with oil. The potato seems to us today to be such a staple food that it is hard to believe that it has only been accepted as edible by most of the Western world for the past 200 years (courtesy : http://www.stim.com). 

This is one recipe which, though requires low-priced ingredient but still is one of the highly priced, most sort-after snacks..I'm sure most of those naughty kids at our homes would run away from nutritious food but would snatch french fries if given; right?! Hence, I tried this one and trust me, its terrific! and you can save a lot of money too..


Potato : 3 nos.
Vegetable oil : for deep frying
Salt : as required
  • Peel off the potatoes, slice them in length to the thickness of 1/2 an inch each and keep aside.
  • Pour oil to a kadai or heavy bottomed pan. When hot, add the sliced potatoes gradually under medium flame. 
  • Fry them until it turns slightly brownish and put them over some tissue papers to drain off the excess oil.
  • Sprinkle salt as required and serve hot. 
  • You may store them after about 5 minutes in an airtight container.
Note : You may add 1/2 a tspn of turmeric powder and/or a little cornflour to the raw potato slices and then deep fry them for a different version of french fries.
