Battered French Fries


2 1/2 lb russet potatoes, peeled

1 c all-purpose flour

1 tsp garlic salt

1 tsp onion salt

1 tsp paprika

1/2 - 1 c water, depending on how thick or thin you want it

1 c vegetable oil for frying


Slice potatoes into French fries, and place into cold water so they won't turn brown while you prepare the oil.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, sift the flour, garlic salt, onion salt and paprika into a large bowl. Gradually stir in enough water so that the mixture can be drizzled from a spoon.

Dip potato slices into the batter one at a time, and place in the hot oil so they are not touching at first. The fries must be placed into the skillet one at a time, or they will clump together. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.

  1. I added brown sugar to the batter and I also cut up sweet potatoes dipping and frying them

  2. These taste amazing battered and then tossed for a few minutes in the pan with a chilli and honey sauce which makes them crispy and a touch soggy from the sauce which turns sticky and tangy, i can’t wait to cook them again
