Homemade French Fries Recipe

Servings: 8 yield(s)
Prep Time: 30 mins
  • 1 kg potatoes (peeled)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1/2 cup water (or as required)
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, salt, and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
  3. Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.
