Masala Fries

Ingredients:

*Spices:

-1 tsp chili powder

-1/2 tsp ground cumin

-1/2 tsp coriander powder

-1/2 tsp salt, to taste

-1/2 tsp garlic powder

-1/2 tsp onion powder


*Other

-400g of potatoes, sliced into sticks or frozen fries, thawed

-Oil (if frying, enough vegetable, or canola oil for deep frying)

-if baking, 3 tbsp olive oil

-if air frying, 2 tsp olive oil


Directions:

-Mix spices together and set aside.

-If using potatoes, peel, wash and cut into french fries.

-Soak (raw/non-frozen) fries in water and set sit for 5-10 minutes to remove excess starch.

-Drain well and lightly pat dry.


If baking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. Sprinkle the spice mix over potatoes, and mix ensuring theyre evenly coated.

  3. Toss the fries with olive oil. Spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the fries and bake for another 20 minutes.

If frying:

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat.

  2. To check if the oil is ready, dip the tip of a wooden spoon into the oil. If it softly bubbles, then it's ready. If it bubbles aggressively, turn the heat down.

  3. Fry the fries until golden brown. Turn the fries over a few times while frying.

  4. Remove fries from oil, and place on a paper towel. Then toss the fries with the spices.

If air-frying:

  1. Toss the fries with the spices and olive oil.

  2. Place them in the container and air fry them for 20 minutes on 180c and flip every 5 minutes.

Serve hot and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce or whipped yogurt.
