  • NOTE : If u want to make them in bulk and store it for later use,after frying for the first time,remove and cool down completely.Store them in a zip lock cover and freeze it till use.Whenever u want to make it,heat oil well and deep fry them.Oil may sizzle & splutter as the potatoes are frozen and coated with ice.So fry them carefully till golden and crispy and serve hot.
  • Baked version : Follow the same steps till  u pat dry the potato strips in kitchen towel.Preheat the oven in convection mode at 200c.No need to cook the potatoes.Arrange the strips in a baking plate and drizzle some oil all over them.Sprinkle some salt or organic seasoning.Mix well and bake them for 25-30 minutes OR till they become crispy.Remove and serve hot.Soon,i will try to make a separate post for this baked version.
    Enjoy !


Note
  • Follow any of the above discussed methods based on your liking.You will get crispy french fries.
  • To make these fries more flavourful,u can sprinkle garlic powder,thyme,basil etc.
  • Use Red colored mud coated potatoes for best results.Other potatoes may turn brown quickly while roasting.
  • Washing the potatoes twice is to remove the extra starch content in the potatoes.It helps u get nice color to the fries.
