How To Make Real Belgian Fries!
Start by peeling some potatoes. Cut them in slices 1 cm (3/8") thick
and finally cut them into fries of 1 cm square. Dry the fries well in
paper or a towel before putting them into the oil.
Heat the oil in a hot frying pan or deep fryer to a temperature of
160C (320F). Put in a handfull of fries: not more at once because the
oil will cool down too much. Fry for a few minutes (4-8 depending on
the thickness and the kind of potatoes), stir regularly to prevent
sticking. Put the fries into a large bowl with kitchen paper and let
them 'sweat' for at least 1/2 hour.
Finally heat to 190C (375F) and fry for 2 minutes until crispy and
golden brown. This way the fries will be crispy on the outside and
soft on the inside, the way they should be!
