Skinny French Fries recipe. Do you love the taste of homemade French Fries? This easy recipe uses very thin pieces of potato, which makes them extra crispy and adds a lot to their flavour.
Step 1: You will need:
- 2 potatoes , peeled and cut into thin strips
- 750 ml vegetable oil , or shortening
- some salt
- 1 saucepan
- 1 tray
- 1 slotted spoon
- some paper towel
Step 2: Preheat the oil
Before starting your French fries, preheat the oil on medium heat.
Step 3: Pre-fry the fries
Add some of the French fries into the hot oil. Fry them in batches if need be, as this will maintain the temperature of the oil. Cook them until a very light brown, which should take about 3-5 minutes. Remove them and place them on the paper towel to drain. Let them rest for about ten minutes before re-frying.
Step 4: Finish the fries
Increase the heat of the oil to a higher setting. Once the oil is hot enough, add the fries in batches, as before, into the pan. Fry for roughly 1 minute, or until they turn golden brown and crispy, then remove. Place onto a tray lined with kitchen towel to drain. Wait for the oil to heat up again before placing the next batch. Continue to fry until all the fries are cooked.
Step 5: Season and serve
Finally, season them with salt and serve hot. Garnish with ketchup, vinegar, mayonnaise, or any sauce you like!
