3 large potatoes
Salt to taste
1-2 tbsp cornflour
Ketchup to serve
Step 1: Wash the potatoes well and peel them with a sharp peeled to avoid wastage.
step 2: Cut a small slice from the longer edge of the potato so it sits well on your cutting board. Keep the potato so it is vertical. Now, proceed to cut it into vertical slices.
Step 3: Now take each slice and cut into finger slices to get even fries.
Step 4: Place the fries in water so they don’t get dark.
Step 5: Boil water and add salt to it. Once it comes to a boil, add the cut potatoes to it and let it boil for 5 minutes.
Step 6: Take out the fries and lay them on a plate. Pat them dry completely and let them cool down.
Step 7: Transfer to a bowl, add the cornflour and toss well! Cover and keep these in the fridge for 1 hour.
Step 8: Take the fries out and fry them in hot oil till golden brown. Add a little salt while they’re still hot and eat with ketchup!
