So, as I have mentioned earlier, it is recommended not to use fresh potatoes because fresh potatoes contain high moisture content.
The lower moisture content leads the final product to be nice, crispy, and tender. And that is what we need in french fries, don't we?
So choose 4 to 5 medium or big size potatoes that are oval-shaped. So it will be easy for you to make long strips. Scrub all the potatoes nicely.
Some people don't remove the upper skin of the potatoes while making french fries and they end up with a tough exterior of the fries.
Peeling is optional. Peeling gives them a more steady look. You can go according to your choice and if the peeler is handy then use it.
Once done, cut them vertically into slices. You need to cut carefully to make long strips. Once the cutting part is done, reserve them in cold water for some time.
Then transfer all the strips to the clean kitchen towel and pat cautiously.
Now is the time to fry them. It is recommended to fry a portion at a time. Use 10 to 15 pieces at a time to fry. You need to fry them for about 35 seconds and then transfer them to the absorbent kitchen paper.
This method is known as blanching where you scald vegetables in boiling oil or water for a short time. Make sure you don't overcook the potato slices.
Transfer them to the kitchen paper and press them down very gently to absorb the extra amount of oil from the slices.
Perfect Crispy French fries
To make the slices crispy add some potato starch. If potato starch is not handy, you can use corn starch as a replacement.
Now we need to freeze them for a while. Freezing for 30 minutes would be ideal. Once the freezing part is done, we need to fry them for the second time.
This time, fry the slices for near about 50 to 60 seconds in moderately hot oil. When the pieces turn golden brown, transfer them to the clean kitchen paper.
Spread them in a wide space because it is the time for seasoning.
Oh wait, I have something special to intensify the taste of the french fries. Use this peri peri jain sauce and enjoy your delicious french fries.
