Ingredients:
Potato - 6 big nos
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Method:
Choose firm potatoes. Wash and clean the potatoes and cut them into thin finger like strips of about 1/2 inch length. Wash the potatoes more than twice to remove the excess starch in it. Soak the potato slices in ice cold water for about an hour. Drain well and rub with kitchen towels to remove the excess water.

Heat oil and when hot place a frying basket ( have seen these kind of baskets in Super Markets) preferably round in shape inside the pan and add a layer of the potato strips. Mix 4 tbsp of salt in 1/2 cup of water and mix well till all the salt dissolves. Add 1 tbsp of salt water to the basket and mix it well so that all the potato strips are evenly coated. Fry the potato strips in the basket until they are golden brown.

The same procedure is to be repeated to all the batches. Remove the excess oil by placing the fried strips in kitchen towels.

Serve with tomato ketchup or spicy cheese dip.
