Cooking french fries at home:
Step 1: Prepare the Potatoes ...Potato tubers for cooking crispy fries must choose large. Firstly, they are conveniently cut, and secondly, straws from such tubers will turn out to be the most identical and beautiful. The potatoes must be thoroughly washed in water, after which we peel it with a knife or a peeler and rinse it again. The vegetable is cut into homogeneous straws - not very large and small. Each side of it should be approximately 0.5 cm. Stack the chopped potatoes on a napkin and cover with another one on top. This is necessary in order to absorb excess moisture from the surface of the slices. At this time, using a sieve in a bowl, sift the starch. After a few minutes, add the potatoes to the bowl and mix the ingredients thoroughly. As a result, the whole straw should be uniformly coated with starch. After that, put a bowl of potatoes for 5-10 minutes in the freezer.
Step 2: Fry the fries.While our potatoes are cooling, we have freed up time to heat the oil. Pour 1 glass of vegetable oil into a dry frying pan or in a cauldron and put it on medium heat. When the oil begins to crack a little, and small bubbles appear in it, if you look closely, it means that it has warmed up and is ready for further cooking. We get the potatoes from their freezers and put them in boiling oil in small portions. It should completely cover the potato layer. Therefore, it is best to cook fries in several passes using the same oil. The potato will be ready in 5 minutes of frying. During this time, it will brown, become crispy on top and soft inside.
Step 3: Serve the fries at home.Using a slotted spoon, we take out the finished potatoes and put them again on a napkin, covering another one on top. At this point, excess oil should drain thoroughly. This can also be done on the grid. Next, sprinkle a little fries with salt, pepper and a mixture of dried herbs. You can also add other spices to your taste, for example, ground paprika, dried garlic, etc. Such potatoes can be an excellent side dish for meat or fish dishes. It must be served with sauces: sour cream, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, cheese or cream - most of the world famous sauces are suitable for fries.
