salt to taste
Call them finger chips or French fries, both are basically a form of deep fried chips prepared from thinly cut potatoes which are then sprinkled with salt and sometimes pepper.
There are two methods of preparing finger chips — deep fried or oven baked. Although in all honesty, the fried ones are perfect finger chips and are more delicious than the baked ones. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and melts in your mouths. The baked ones are no doubt healthier fries but not perfect finger chips.
How to Make French Fries
Wash the potatoes. You can peel the skin if you want. I prefer to have them with skin since it will give a fine look to the French fries. Cut the potatoes into long and little thick sticks. If you have a potato slicer at home use it, or else take care to slice the potatoes into same size sticks so that they’ll fry evenly. Put them in large amount of water as they are cut.
