qwei promised you this copycat McDxxxxx’s french fries recipe following my copycat K*C recipe ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

Recipe adapted from Nicko’s Kitchen

Ingredients

3 large potatoes
sugar
light corn syrup
salt (for seasoning)
oil (for frying)

食材

土豆 3大颗

玉米浆
盐(调味用)
油(炸薯条用)

Directions/做法

– peel and slice potato
土豆削皮、切条状

– pop fries into cold water for 5 mins to remove excess starch
切好的薯条用冰水浸泡 3分钟以去除多余的淀粉

– after 5 mins, drain off the cold water and place the fries into another clean pyrex dish
5分钟后,将水分沥干、薯条放在干净的容器里

– pour boiling water into another dish. put some sugar in and some corn syrup. stir to dissolve. then pour this solution onto the fries. this serves to give the fries that crunchy McDxxxxx’s texture
另一个容器里倒入沸腾的热水。加入少许躺和玉米浆、拌匀。将其糖水倒倒薯条上。这个步骤让炸出来的薯条爽脆可口

– place the fries in the solution for 10 mins
薯条浸泡 10分钟

– after 10 mins, drain water and place fries onto a plate lined with paper towel. also pat fries dry with another layer of paper towel
10分钟后将糖水倒掉。薯条用厨纸拍干

– place the plate of fries into freezer for 20 mins
将薯条码到碟子上、冷冻 20分钟

– to fry ~ heat up canola oil in wok and place in fries without over-crowding basket
开炸~葵花籽油烧热后放入薯条。注:可别一次过加入太多薯条

– at this stage, fry fries for 2 mins. fries should not have any colour on them. place them on a plate with paper towel. this completes the first stage of frying. let fries cool for 10 mins
此时,将薯条炸两分钟。薯条未上色~捞起到厨纸上。让薯条冷却 10分钟

– after cooling, pour fries back into the wok, and place into oil. fry for 5-7 mins. this is the second and last stage of frying
薯条冷却后,将其重新放入热油中翻炸。炸约 5-7分钟

– pull fries out of wok. season them with salt while fries are still hot and coat well
薯条炸至金黄色后捞起、趁热撒上适量的盐、拌匀

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6409– i used 1.5 tbsp sugar and corn syrup for the boiling water
糖和玉米浆我各用了 1.5大匙

– please ensure you do not overlap fries when freezing them
冷冻薯条是千万不可重叠

– i made these in big batches, and stored a portion of it for future use. to store, complete all the above steps until after the first frying stage is completed. Ensure fries are totally cooled, then bag them in ziplock bag. then freeze
这次做了一大批薯条、其一待享用。如想冷冻后享用,可根据做法直至一次炸薯条后(也就是无需翻炸),待冷却、装入密封袋、冷冻即可

– i air-fried a small batch, and deep fried another. verdict? the deep fried is indeed much better
我将一小部份薯条用了空气炸锅炸、其余油炸。结论?有些事物真哒还是油炸好次
