The video begins with chopping up the potatoes and soaking them in icy cold water for an hour. Chef recommends changing the water three times. Next, he dries them as much as possible with the help of a paper towel. Now begins the frying process for which he used peanut oil at 290 degrees. Chef fries in small batches for about five minutes, after which he leaves them to dry on a rack. He then proceeds to freeze them for two hours.
