In a deep pot, heat 3 inches of oil over medium high heat until it reaches between 280 and 300 degrees. Drain potatoes in a colander/ Pat dry with a kitchen towel. Add potatoes to hot oil in batches and fry for 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Transfer to a freezer until well chilled. Remove chilled potatoes from freezer and coate with beaten eggs and then panko mixture.
