Cooking french fries without oil:
Step 1: prepare the potatoes.
The first step is to rinse the potatoes well with water, and then remove the peel from it and rinse again, removing the remaining dirt. Cut the clean tubers into cubes, as for classic french fries. Thick pieces do not need to be made, as well as too thin, focus on about 1-1.5 centimeters in thickness. Spread disposable paper towels on the countertop and put potato straws on them to get rid of excess moisture, this will make the finished dish more crispy.
Step 2: prepare the eggs.
Rinse and degrease the whisk of the mixer and the bowl in which you will whip the proteins. Using a separator, separate the yolks, we will not need them to prepare this dish. Important: the dishes should be clean, and the yolks removed without a trace, otherwise thick foam simply will not work.
Put the squirrels in a bowl, add a little salt to them and beat with a mixer until soft peaks. Start at the slowest speed and gradually, as the foam thickens, increase the number of revolutions.
Step 3: bake french fries in the oven.
Set the oven to heat to 180 degrees Celsius. At this time, dip the potato straw into the whipped whites and mix gently so that each slice is completely covered with white mass. Take out the baking sheet and spread the baking paper on it, and lay the potatoes directly on it. Sprinkle everything on top with pepper and other spices to taste, and put in the oven. Bake fries until golden crust appears on all sides, i.e., approximately 30-40 minutes.
Step 4: serve the french fries.
Serve the french fries cooked in the oven without using oil, serve hot immediately after it is ready. Use it as a side dish for meat, fish or poultry dishes, as well as a delicious snack, seasoning potatoes with your favorite sauce. And although this dish turned out to be more dietary and healthy than cooked according to the classic recipe, it is still not worth it to abuse.
Enjoy your meal!
- You can, of course, use seasonings and spices to your taste, as well as add dried or fresh herbs to the potatoes.
- Instead of baking paper, you can use foil, but one way or another you need to cover something with a baking sheet, otherwise the potatoes will simply stick to it.
- For cooking french fries, large varieties with a low starch content are best suited.
