– 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

– place the plate of fries into freezer for 20 mins

– to fry ~ heat up canola oil in wok and place in fries without over-crowding basket

– 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

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

– 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

– i air-fried a small batch, and deep fried another. verdict? the deep fried is indeed much better
