CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • 2 ½ pounds russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup water, or as needed
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
DIRECTIONS
  1. Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt, regular 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.
