This is the third time I make French Fries at home. I had already tried to make homemade french fries 2 times before. Though I managed to make some tasty homemade french fries without deep frying in the first attempt with boiling and toasting, I failed to do in the second attempt as I tried to completely bake them without oven as I bake cake without oven. So, I stick to boiling and toasting when I make french fries at home.

  • Oil - 1 tsp
 
Instructions
  1. Peel the skin.

  3. Drain excess water.
  4. Cook potato slices with water and salt in a pan.
  5. Switch off the stove once they are cooked and run the slices under cold water.
  6. Allow the potato slices to dry for few minutes under fan in a colander. Sprinkle pepper powder on the slices as much as you want. Check for salt and sprinkle salt if required.
  7. Toast the sides of potato on a tawa till the sides become crisp.

Detailed Step by step instructions for French Fries Recipe:


1. Peel the skin off the potato. Keep a bowl of water ready.

2. Cut the potato into thin and long slices and keep each slice in water as soon as you cut.

3. Allow the potato slices to be immersed in water for 10 minutes. This will allow you to drain the excess starch.

4. Drain the excess water after 10 minutes.

5. Heat a pan and add the potato slices. Add water just to immerse the potato slices. Add required amount of salt.

6. Cook in medium flame till the potato becomes soft but not mushy. The potato should not become mushy as you cook for poriyal and other dishes. When you insert a knife, you should be able to cut the slice with a knife but not very easily. In the next step, we are just going to toast the outer side of the slices. So, cook till how much you want to cook the inner side of the potatoes. The inner side will not get cooked further. You might have already tasted french fries outside. Get it cooked to that consistency. Switch off the stove. Drain excess water immediately. Run the slices under cold water. Keep it in colander to allow the excess water to get drained completely. Toss a little bit. You can keep the slices under a fan for few minutes to remove the moisture.

7. Sprinkle pepper powder on the slices as much as you want. Check for salt and sprinkle salt if required.

8. Take a teaspoon of oil and grease your palm and fingers. Coat the potato slices with that oil.

9. Heat a tawa in medium flame. Grease the tawa with oil. I did not use non stick. I used normal iron tawa. So, I had to grease the tawa with little amount of oil.

10. Place the potato strips on tawa and toast the top and bottom or all the sides of potato. You will see brown spots here and there initially. Toast till the potato slices has become crisp. Take care not to burn. Patience is the key here. Drizzle few drops of oil around the slices as and when required.
