    When the water comes to boil, plonk the potatoes and switch off the gas. Now, leave the potatoes for 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Drain the water and put the potatoes on a tissue or dry cloth. Let them dry or if you're in a hurry dab it with a tissue to dry off the water.
  3. Heat the oil till you can see small bubbles on the side. Now add the potatoes, one by one. Make sure the potatoes have enough space and aren't stacked on top of each other.
