In this article, you'll find out how to make tasty Belgian French fries. They are different from traditional ones as they are thicker and twice fried. Enjoy your potatoes!
- Mayonnaise (optional).
- Salt (optional).
Step 1. Start by washing and peeling the potatoes
Step 2. Cut into 1 cm thick strips
Step 3. Wash in cold water
This way, most of the starch will be removed and the potatoes will be more crunchy and delicious.
Step 4. Dry with a paper towel until they are completely dry
Step 5. Saute the vegetables
Pour the oil into a deep skillet and set the temperature at 160 °C. Don't overload the fryer: otherwise your potatoes will stick together and not be as tasty. Fry them for approximately eight minutes (depending on thickness).
Step 6. Take the potatoes out of the fryer and place them in a bowl covered with paper towels
The paper will absorb excess oil. Leave them there for about 20 minutes.
Step 7. Fry the potatoes a second time
Set the temperature of the fryer to 190°C and fry them for about three minutes until they are crispy and golden. Place them into the bowl with a new sheet of paper towels so you can soak up the excess oil again.
Step 8. Serve the fries with mayonnaise, ketchup and a little salt if you prefer
- You can serve the fries with different types of sauces, mustard, pickles, etc.
- It is possible to use different types of potato, such as Yukon, Gold or Russet.
- Don't cut the potatoes too thin. Try cutting them into 1 cm thick strips.
