This instructable will teach you how to perfect the Mc donalds french fries from scratch.
Step 1: You will have to have....
2) vegetable oil or sunflower oil
4) kitchen paper towel (kitchen tissue paper)
2) vegetable peeler
3) frying pan
Step 3: Trick of cutting potatoes
This trick will help you to cut the potatoes so that the cuts are all even like the mc donald's french fries.
Hold the potato vertically . start by cutting it vertically from one side , just make cuts till the end so that the cut piece still hangs on to the potato.
After you have finished making single slices now hold the potato vertically and cut it perpendicular to the first cuts what you had made .
Now you will have the desired cuts still hanging on to the potato, so just remove them with a knife.
Step 4: Prepare to cook
Put the potatoes in a vessel, add a teaspoon of salt and add water to it so that the potatoes are almost covered with water.
Step 5: Cook the potatoes
cook the potatoes for 7 minutes on medium heat , stir occasionally so that u make sure that the potatoes dont become soft .
this process is to cook the outer starch layer of the potato so when the cooked starch is fried they add an outer crispy layer.
Step 6: Prepare the potatoes to fry
After 7 minutes of cooking drain the water from the vessel . be careful it will be steaming hot .
Take some paper towel (tissue paper) and spread it on a plate .
Put the cooked potatoes on the tissue paper so that the water is absorbed, you can put another layer of tissue paper on top of the potatoes.
Step 7: Prepare the oil
Take 10 table spoons of vegetable or sunflower oil and add it to the frying pan.
heat the oil for 4 minutes on medium flame.
To check if the oil is heated or not , take a small chunk of potato and slowly drop it into the oil . if the oil is adequately heated it creates spontaneous air bubbles.
