INGREDIENTS TO MAKE SOME POTATO WEDGES OR FRENCH FRIES FOR TWO PEOPLE:
- 2 medium potatoes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon of sweet paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
RECIPE OF THE POTATOES OR FRENCH FRIES IN GAJO:
1.- Without peeling the potatoes, we cut them lengthwise, in half. Then we cut each half into wedges. We will get 4 segments of each half, approximately
2.- We wash the potatoes in plenty of water. Thus, we remove dirt from them and excess starch. Remove the starch from the potatoes, it is a good idea if we are going to fry them. They are crispier and stick less to each other during frying
3.- We drain the water from the potatoes and fry them in plenty of oil. The oil should cover completely. And it shouldn’t be too hot. Rather, at medium temperature. About 120ºC. Let it fry at that temperature for about 7 minutes
4.- After a time we remove them from the oil and let them cool completely. Minimum, 30 minutes
5.- When they are cold, on a plate we put the rest of the ingredients. As I said, the spices are fully customizable.
6.- Add the potatoes and stir well, with your hands, so that they are well impregnated with the whole mixture. That they are well coated with flour and spices.
7.- We fry again. This time at a high temperature. About 180ºC. After about 3 minutes, when they are well browned, remove and place on absorbent paper
