  • 8 pieces potatoes medium size
  • 500 ml sunflower oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • Clean the peeled potatoes, then cut off some thicker sticks. Then wash the potatoes in cold water several times until the water is clear.
  • After washing the potatoes, I put them in a kitchen towel or paper towel and I wipe them off when the potatoes are perfectly dried.
  • In a deeper bowl or in the fryer, put the oil to warm to medium or 180 degrees and wait until the oil gets hot.
  • Potato roasting is done in two stages, the first will be at the average temperature of about 3-5 minutes, during which the potatoes will be made fluffy inside, then we increase the temperature to a maximum of 240 degrees and fry for about 2 minutes, until what the potatoes will be golden and crisp outside.
  • Now we can remove the potatoes in a pot in which we put a tissue paper to absorb excess oil and season with sea salt, which, besides tasting potatoes, will also absorb the oil from the potato.
