  • About


  • 3 medium-size russet potatoes
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • Salt to taste


Peel and grate the potatoes using either the coarse grater blade of a food processor or the largest holes of a hand grater. As they are grated, place the potatoes in a bowl of cold, lightly salted water so they won’t discolor. In a deep-fryer or deep, heavy skillet, heat at least 2 inches of oil to 375
