The Perfect French Fries - Kids Special Recipes under 30 mins


 There is nothing compared to a plate full of crispy french fries when you are watching a movie, or chatting with friends, browsing food blogs or even having a party..French fries are popular with kids of all ages..We love french fries a lot, I do make it at home often but I found that french fries tend to get soggy once you take them off the heat..So I was searching for a good recipe for so long time and finally found this one, I modified it slightly according to my taste..The original recipe doesn't need to boil, but I did that step so that the potatoes get cooked inside and get crispy outside when fried..I added some salt and chilli powder to make it get more flavourful..



I hope you will try this out and tell me how it cameout..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 5 under the theme Kid's Delight - Easy to make Snacks under 30 mins..

Recipe Source:Pioneer Woman

Ingrediants:

Potatoes - 5 large peeled and cut into long strips
Salt to taste
Chilli powder - 1 tsp

Now add in the potatoes in this and cook it for 3 mins.

Hey Aarthi...

Yesterday (Jan 6) I did this man. Decorated the plate with tomato chops.I also added soya sauce to it.

I got nice appreciation from my family.. All because of Yummy Tummy...

One more thing to say...
Your second video is too good da.

Shweta said...

Hi Aarthi,

This is my first comment on any blog for that matter. And I am all praises for your work, so procedural and your time saving tips are awesome. Kudos to you !!

I am just making the French fries recipe as mentioned by you, while my baby is asleep. Was wondering whether the frying can be done in advance of 2-3 hours of eating ?
Also what is the best way to retain the crispness of the fries?

Also any other way I can save some and use next day or so ?

Would appreciate your inputs please.

Thanks and keep up your work a lot of us new mommies and many others keep remembering you in all our meal times :)

Aarthi said...
