HOMEMADE CRUNCHY FRENCH FRIES (CHIPS) IN TWO WAYS

Homemade crunchy french fries, this was an obsession for most of us when we were young. A weekend would hardly pass by without fries and this grew to an adult obsession for me. Whenever i pass by Nairobi town, at times it can be hard to resist the smell of the fries from the take away joints. Well, now that we are older, we can make our own homemade fries without the fear of very hot oil.

Finally you can get to enjoy your fries. To add more flavour to your homemade crunchy french fries (chips) is optional. However, you can season with salt, black pepper and a touch of paprika. You can as well add in some tomato sauces or like what I enjoy some hot and sweet sauce.
