  2. Dry the potatoes well: Make sure to dry the potatoes with a kitchen towel or paper towel before frying them to remove any excess moisture. This will help the potatoes to fry evenly and stay crispy.
  3. Salt the potatoes just before serving: Salt the potatoes just before serving so that the salt does not evaporate and so that the flavor is more intense.
  4. Always make sure to serve the fries hot: to enjoy their best flavor and texture.
  5. The final touch: You can give a personal touch to your chips by adding spices or herbs to the oil before frying the potatoes, such as garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, rosemary, etc. You can also add these same spices at the very end by sprinkling them over the fries.
