Now the next step is to leave the potatoes in water for minimum 1-2 hours or you can also refrigerate it overnight. This is the fundamental first step of making proper french fries. The soaking process removes the starch on the outside of the potato, this helps to remove the excess starch from the potatoes and it stays crispy when we fry them.
Now after soaking blanch the potatoes. Heat water in a bowl and add salt , vinegar mix it once and then add the potatoes,Soaking in hot water softens the potatoes so it remains soft at the inside. let it soak for 7-10 minutes.
The secret in every perfect fries to is double fry them . So for the first time we need to fry the potatoes at low temperature 300-325 F for 3 - 4 minutes. This time we are not looking for any color change. Fry it in small batches, do not over crowed them , leaves space between the potatoes and fry it for just 3-4 minutes.
Now at this point after frying once we can freeze it and fry it again whenever you want. I always make it in large quantity and freeze the rest so whenever needed we can immediately take if from the freezer and fry.
Once the fries are cooled completely it time to do the second frying. Increase the temperature to 350- 375 degrees an fry it until they develop nice golden color on the outsides.
