Is it necessary to boil potatoes before frying?
For making deep fried potatoes, there is no need to boil them beforehand. You can directly deep fry them from their raw state. However, to ensure that the inside of the potatoes cooks before the skin becomes crispy, it is important to add water to the oil instead of using hot oil. Here is a step-by-step guide:
1. Start by peeling the skin off the potatoes and cutting them into your desired shape, such as cubes or slices. If you prefer to keep the skin on, make sure to thoroughly wash the potatoes with a soft sponge to remove any dirt.
2. Place the cut potatoes in a bowl, rinse them, drain the water, and then add salt. Stir well to evenly distribute the salt.
3. In a separate small bowl, mix together butter, parsley, garlic, rosemary, and pepper. Set this mixture aside.
4. Place a deep pan on the stove and add oil to it.
5. Add the potatoes to the pan and fry them on medium heat until they become crispy and cooked on the inside.
6. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oil and transfer them to a bowl.
7. Add the butter and herb mixture to the bowl of potatoes and stir well to ensure that all the potatoes are evenly coated.
8. Serve and enjoy your delicious deep fried potatoes.
