🥣 How khổng lồ Make Okonomiyaki Fries

French Fries

It starts with the fries. I recommend going with a type of potato with a high-starch content and low moisture lượt thích Russet potatoes, for the best texture and flavor.

Peel the potatoes & cut them into ½-inch thick matchsticks. Next, soak them in cold water for about 40 minutes. This step will help remove some of the excess starch & allow the fries khổng lồ get crispier during frying.


Then, for cooking the fries I am sharing two options: deep-frying or air-frying.


This version yields crispier & better fries overall. Start by heating a pot of oil lớn 275°F (135°C). Once hot, fry the potatoes for about 5 minutes. Next, drain the potatoes and bring the heat of the oil lớn 400°F (200°C). Fry the potatoes a second time another 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown.
