  • 2 potatoes use russet potatoes
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Oil to fry


  • Wash and peel the potatoes, and slice potatoes into French fries, and place into ice cold water for at about 10 minutes. Soaking in water potatoes some of the starch will come out and water will look fogy. Remove them from water to clean kitchen towel and pat dry.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Put the fries into oil, don’t over crowed them. Notes: overcrowding fries will bring oil temperature to very low and fries can become very oily.
  • Turn the fries occasionally, fry until golden brown it should take about 6-8 minutes. Remove fries from oil with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towel. Sprinkle the salt and fries are ready to serve.


My family and friends enjoy the fries with tamarind chutney, this exotic sweet and sour chutney is a delicious condiment. I always have this in my refrigerator. My grandkids also like to have a lemonade or Mango lassi with French fries.
