Instructions in Steps

Step 1: Choose the Best Potatoes

Begin by selecting potatoes with a high starch content for a fluffy interior and crispy exterior.

Step 2: Slice and soak

Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin, uniform slices. To eliminate extra starch, soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3: Thoroughly dry

To guarantee crispness during frying, pat the wet potatoes completely dry using paper towels.

Step 4: Make the Spice Blend

For that characteristic flavour, combine salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and a pinch of cornflour in a mixing dish.

Preheat the oil in Step 5

In a deep fryer or pan, heat the vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).

Coat the Potatoes in Step 6

Toss the dry potato strips in the spice mixture to coat evenly.

Step 7: Continue to fry until golden brown.

Place the breaded potatoes carefully in the hot oil and cook until golden brown and crispy.

8th Step: Drain and Season

Remove the fries from the oil and pat dry using paper towels. If desired, season with more spice blend.

Step 9: The Special Sauce

Make the secret sauce by blending mayonnaise, ketchup, and a bit of pickle relish for a genuine KFC experience.

Tips for Making Perfect Fries

Creating the perfect specialty fries demands meticulous attention to detail. Here are some pointers to help you succeed:

  • Make sure to use fresh, high-quality potatoes.
  • Keep the oil at the proper temperature for crispy fries.
  • Experiment with different spice amounts to find what you like.
