INGREDIENTS:

Cooking Olive-Oil --------------to spray

DIRECTIONS:

1.Wash and peel the Potato and divide it into two equal halves longitudinally.

2.Start working with each half in batches.

3.Slice them lengthwise into long even strips.Make sure that all the strips are cut out evenly.

4.When done place them in ice-water for 20-30mins witha little bit of salt.

5.Preheat the oven to 325degreeF for 3-5 mins.

4.Drain off the water and pat the soaked strips with a dry paper towel.See that no water is left.

5.Transfer to mixing bowl and add salt.pepper,chilli powder and mix properly.

5.Spray little oil over a large baking plate and place the spice coated strips equally spaced on the plate.Make sure that they donot touch each other.

6.After assembling them spray little more oil on the top and place in the oven.

7.Bake for 8-10 mins then remove ,then turn them a little bit and place back.

8.Bake for another 5-8 mins till they are done as you desired.Some people like them to be deep-fried and some prefer it light.So depending on your choice bake for less or more than the specified time.But dont forget to keep an eye on them for the second time.

9.When done place in paper towel to remove any excess oil for 2-3 mins and have them as they now are ready to be served.

Your french fries look mouth-watering...i will try it in oven becoz its more healthy than frying in oil.

Just gorgeous, Raaji, and so perfect. I love the presentation too. I love making oven-baked fries because I'm a sucker for potatoes, and usually add some dried rosemary to punch up the flavor.
