Crispy Spicy French Fries Recipe
You can try this recipe on National French Fry Day.
- 2 ½ pounds russet potatoes
- Water as needed
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon onion salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons chili sauce
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
- Optional: Seasonings of your choice (cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt, onion salt, chili powder, garlic powder, etc)
Peel, rinse, and cut the potatoes into evenly sized strips. Place them into cold water. For best results allow them to soak for at least two hours. Heat oil in a skillet.
Sift the flour, onion salt, garlic salt, paprika, black pepper, and salt into a large bowl. Add chili sauce. Using a spatula or a spoon, stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.
Take potato slices out of the water, dip them into the batter, and fry in the hot oil. Fry until crispy, then remove from the skillet using a slotted frying spoon and drain on paper towels. You can sprinkle with seasonings of your choice.
