I tried baking fries, rather than deep frying them.
The result is urrmm............ not that satisfactory.
Anyone has any good experience with baked fries? Please share with me.
Below is the recipe, and I forgot where I took it from. Hers look fab, but mine is... hahaha, no where near pretty. Maybe it's due to it being skinless??? I don't know, and I'm really looking for a good baked fries recipe. Please help me... pretty please.
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
4 cloves garlic, smashed with ½ tsp salt in a pestle
Put oil in pan and when it’s hot, put in smashed garlic and butter. Turn heat off. Just need to warm through. Keep aside
3 Tbsp corn starch
1 tsp rice flour
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
600gm russet potatoes (3 pieces)
Peel and cut into thick pieces.
Blanch in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain properly using colander.
When it’s well drained, but still hot, put potatoes into a large bowl/basin. Put in (A). Toss potatoes with garlic oil. Then put (B) and toss until well combined.
Preheat oven to 200C/220C. The arrange potatoes in baking pan, single layer. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden.
