Introduction: Straw Potato Fries

Make crispy Straw Potatoes (also known as Shoestring and Matchstick Fries) at home from scratch!

Step 1:

Peel and wash 250 grams of potatoes per serving. Slice into Julienne strips: 3-5 cm long (1.5 inch), and 3 mm wide. Hand cut the potatoes, or use a mandoline.

Step 2:

Place the potatoes in a bowl of cold water and rinse until the water runs clear, to remove excess starch.

Step 3:

Arrange in a single layer on paper towels, pat with more paper towels to dry thoroughly.

Step 4:

Place 1 liter of vegetable oil in 4 liter pot. Heat to 180-190°C.

Step 5:

Add the potatoes, and fry until golden and crispy, stirring occasionally.

Step 6:

Remove the potatoes from the oil using a slotted spoon or a spider and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Season with salt and serve as a side dish to complement the main course, or a snack. Enjoy!
