Cooking fried potatoes:
Step 1: Prepare the onion.Cut the onion into two halves and clean it from the scales; it is much more convenient to clean the onion floor than the whole. After cleaning, crush it into small cubes and mix a little with your hands so that the pieces of onion peel off from each other.
Step 2: Prepare the potatoes.
Peel, wash, and cut the potatoes into medium-sized cubes.
If you have the opportunity, use homemade young potatoes, right from the garden. It does not need to be peeled, just wipe it properly with a brush or sponge.
Put slices of potatoes on a paper towel and pat dry. If excess moisture remains, it can destroy vegetables and turn fried potatoes into fried mashed potatoes.

This is an important stage in the cooking process, now you need to preserve the integrity of the potato, and for this it should be raw side down, and fried up.Keep frying the potatoes over medium heat yet 5 minutes, then turn over again, repeat this operation until the potato is covered with a golden blush on all sides evenly. On average, it takes 10-15 minutes.
As soon as the potatoes with onions are fried, reduce the heat a little more, but not to a minimum. Add 2 tablespoons of water, gently pouring them around the edges. Cover and cook about 8 minutes. After this time, you will have ready-made fried potatoes, evenly fried on the outside and soft inside. Use a slotted spoon and lay the potatoes on paper towels to get rid of excess fat.
