What just happened?

This time, I decided to re create the authentic fast food chain favorite french fries at home.. I enjoyed it and it was truly delicious, I hope you do try it out!

The things you will need: (serves 2)

  • 4 medium sized potatoes
  • Salt
  • Water for blanching
  • Oil for deep frying or you may air fry it if you please..
  • Pepper for seasoning

Lets Get started:

  • Firstly wash and peel the potatoes
  • Try and get your hands on the non starchy potatoes
  • After peeling soak them in water
  • Wash them once again
  • Now try and recreate french fries you have seen and eaten for so long, with your trusty knife and chopping board. Or if you are lucky and have a french fry cutter go ahead and use it…
  • Whilst you are at it (it will take you some time!) boil some water. The water should be enough to blanch the fries. Add some salt to the water.
  • As the water comes to a boil, add your cut potatoes and cook till 3/4th done.
  • now remove from heat and drain quickly.
  • Then, spread out on a huge kitchen towel for it to cool down.
  • Dry the fries using the kitchen towel.
  • After drying completely put your fries in a zip lock bag.
  • Seal it and put it into the freezer for 3 hours.

 

Time to recreate!!!

 

  • Heat the oil for deep frying
  • Get a tissue paper ready for soaking the oil excess.
  • Now get your fries out and do not thaw
  • Fry until golden…

 

Season with whatever you like, I enjoyed mine with a mild seasoning of salt and pepper.

Adios Amigos and Happy Frying!
