French Fries

French Fries

French Fries or Finger Chips are a popular snack and served with ketchup or mayonnaise. They can also we topped with cheesy sauces and served. They are also served as embellishments with dishes like steaks. You can partially cook them and store in the freezer. But to make perfect French Fries we need to cut them into even strips. I use the batonnet-cut to make my fries.

Ingredients:

  • Potatoes – 4 medium sized
  • Oil – to deep fry
  • Salt – as needed

Step 1:     Wash the potatoes to remove any dirt. Then peel them and keep them immersed in enough water for one hour.
