How to Fry Potatoes in 9 Easy Steps
Are you wondering how to fry potatoes in a pan? Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure you have tried to throw a potato slice in a pan, hoping it would turn into a culinary masterpiece. I’m also pretty sure it didn’t turn out the way you thought it would be. The result: wobbly pale “fries” with burned edges. Not exactly the firm, crispy, golden ones you had in your mind. Believe me, making exquisite home fried potatoes is simple as pie; well, they are effortless compared to making a pie. Fries just require some basic cooking.
Before attempting to make real fries, (the ones you actually want to eat), remember you have to pay close attention to them. By that, I mean no TV while you are frying. You know what happens when you get too involved in the soap opera, yeah burned fries! You want them crispy but not that much.
This recipe for fried potatoes is pretty straightforward, so no need for a headache. You can use coconut oil, canola oil or any other vegetable oil you like. You can add a unique touch by using different cuts like stick (Julienne or matchstick cut), grated, shoestring, wedge, crinkle, steak, and log cut. Other deluxe cuts you may want to try are butterfly (or ribbon), tornado (fried and served in a bamboo skewer), spiral, and waffle.
