Who doesn’t like a good plate of crispy fries? It definitely remains one of everyone’s favorite dishes. Alone or as an accompaniment to meat, these potato sticks are part of our culinary habits.
Only problem: you have to use a lot of oil to prepare them. What if we told you that it is possible to make them without even frying them? No more greasy french fries and excess fat harmful to health. How else to cook this dish to make it healthier? Now we show you an amazing recipe for french fries without the slightest drop of oil.
The recipe for french fries without oil
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Method of preparation
– Beat the egg whites and mix them with the spices mentioned above (and others that you particularly like). In particular, you can add rosemary or special fried spices that you will find in any supermarket.
– Then put the cut potatoes in a salad bowl and pour the whipped egg whites. Mix everything well with your hands.
– Remove the pan from the oven, line it with baking paper or parchment.
– Place your potato chip sticks on top. For the little trick: space them out so they don’t stick together.
– Put the tray back into the preheated oven at 220°C. After 10 minutes check the cooking. Make sure you flip them so they cook on the other side as well. After another 10-12 minutes, your fries are ready.
NB : another version consists in boiling them very lightly before putting them in the oven. Again, you need to repeat the above process with the egg whites and spices.
That’s it, now you have a perfect method for making fluffy, golden brown fries without having to drain the cooking oil!
