French fries

French Fries 

Alright when you have tried all methods available for the one basic Fries and then hit the jackpot you feel a kind of calm which gives you pure joy.

Truth be told the secrets in the fat , yes pork fat which retains the yellow colour makes it perfectly crispy yet soft inside.

Here is what I did :-

4 large potatoes chopped in finger sized sizes
Vegetable Oil
50gm pork fat
Salt as per taste

Bring a large pan of water to boil. Now her is the trick there are different varieties of potatoes across the globe and the time you take depends on where you live so you have to look out and feel things with your hands. You have to boil the potato sticks till its firm yet not soft or completely cooked. I took exactly 4 minutes to reach the stage.

Now heat the oil and chop the fat and melt and then when it turns dark brown take the fat out and fry the poattoes batch by batch on low heat for 5 minutes and then re-fry on medium heat till it turns crispy. take them out and leave on a paper towel but not for too long else they become cold and then mix well with salt and serve
