I have always wanted to perfect the fries at home.Crunchy on outside and soft inside yet not slushy or overcooked.After much reading I got the perfect idea to start on them.A favorite side with burgers or sandwiches.
Homemade Fries and Tomato Grilled Cheese
Potato: I have used one,sliced into fingers
Bread slices: 2
Cheddar cheese: 2 slices
Tomato :2 slices
Red onion: 2 slices
Red chili flakes
For the Fries:
Wash the sliced potato fingers well in water until the frothing washes away.This removes the superficial starch on the potatoes.Now pat them dry on a kitchen towel.Heat about 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and let it heat.Add the potato fingers in it when oil is hot and do not turn the heat down.It would take hardly take 2 to 3 minutes until the potatoes are done.Take the fries out and keep them on tissue to soak the excess oil.Sprinkle coarse salt on them while still hot.I served it with ketchup.
For the Grilled cheese:
Layer two cheddar cheese slices on a bread.Top it with the onion and tomato slices.Sprinkle red chili flakes and ground black pepper.Layer the other bread slice on the top of it.I grilled them on a pan brushing each side of the bread with olive oil.
Serve hot with the fries.
