The potatoes

Obviously, in the preparation of French fries, it is important to choose the main ingredient, potato. At least, you have to buy potatoes other than for frying and not the varieties that are best for baking or cooking.

To prepare the fries, peel the potatoes and cut them into slices about 1 cm thick. Cut each slice into sticks of 1 cm wide and about 5 long and continue with all the slices until we have the potatoes ready for the next phase.

Soaking yes or no

Once chopped potatoes, we recommend leaving them to soak in a bowl. Therefore, we avoid turning brown due to oxidation, and remove some of the starch with potatoes, preventing sticking frying each other.

The soak the chips before frying is optional but I does seem appropriate, limiting soak about 15 minutes, which are sufficient to remove most of the starch and took the opportunity to prepare the pans, oil, etc.

When we take the salt?

While it is always better to leave a little bland potatoes and add salt at the end when they are fried and crispy, I prefer to sprinkle the potatoes slightly after soaking with a little salt. After stirring the potatoes mix well with your hands, we proceed to fry them with the technique indicate below.

Once fried, potato and sprinkle tried a more or less salt over potatoes depending on how much they have left. Normally it is sufficient to add a pinch on the finished potatoes.

Oil for frying, What type do I use?

For my part, I am a fan of olive oil extra virgin and is home to also use for frying at high temperature such as requiring potatoes. However, some people prefer to use sunflower oil for this preparation, so that the aromas of olive oil do not pass the potatoes.

I choose the extra virgin olive oil because I think it improves the taste of potato chips, compared to other oils actually get a good frying but without providing flavor. I leave it to your choice.

Frying Two-time at two temperatures

To fry the potatoes well need two pans, one for the first part of the process in which fry Wands potato at 140° for about 7 or 8 minutes, and one for the second phase, in which foremost and leave crispy potatoes frying at 190° for about five minutes.

If you want to do this in electric fryer, you can fry the potatoes over low heat, remove the basket from the fryer letting drain the oil while setting the thermostat at maximum re-dip the potatoes as soon as the oil reaches the temperature of 190° to get golden brown potatoes.

Some recommend an intermediate stage between the two chips, in which the par – fried potatoes get into the freezer for about 30 minutes and then finish them in frying at high temperature. (It can be done but in my opinion, the difference is not noticeable therefore being sufficient rest for about 10 minutes between frying and another to get some amazing fries).

The temperature shock, to put the potatoes in the second pan makes crunchy potatoes also remain somewhat cracked on the outside, which increases the feeling of crisp.

Drained potatoes

The chips keep the heat very well. So there is no problem let them rest on absorbent paper towels to remove excess oil that may have retained. However, with this technique, the final high temperature frying or “deep fry” potatoes absorb less oil if becomes progressively increasing fire.


Now that you know how to do, and we just need you to prepare these delicious fries, the best fries in the whole world as a garnish for a dish of your liking and call it the whole family to try them and check with you how this process deserves rock. Already you tell me.
