Potato is a versatile vegetable, and it can be used to make a number of dishes in multiple ways. French fries, or potato crisps, is one such recipe which is loved across age groups. Thinly sliced potatoes which are deep fried and seasoned generously make for a great appetiser or an any-time snack. But a common problem that most people face while making French fries is that they come out soggy or limp. Their texture differs largely from what we are served in restaurants wherein the fries are crisp and a delight to taste. So what makes potato fries super crisp and how can you make them crisp when cooking at home?
