Zeny Air Fryer French Fries
Air frying fries are different from deep-frying French fries. The cooking method is unusual for air fryer French fries. But, it is simple in execution.
The first step is choosing the potatoes and French fry cutter. Fries made from Russet potatoes have the classic French fries taste. Wash the potatoes well in a sink.
Secondly, cut the potatoes in the same shape. If not able to do so, the same width will be sufficient. We can leave the skin on or peel it according to our preferences.
Next, toss the uncooked potatoes in a bowl with salt, pepper, and oil. We can add oregano or mixed herbs if we want to. For a whole basket of fries, one teaspoon of oil is enough.
Lastly, we will put the fries in the basket and set the temperature for 400 F. It needs to cook for 20 minutes. We can cook it longer if we prefer a crispier texture.
Once, during the cooking time, we should take the basket out and shake it. It will help the fries to cook evenly. Besides, we need to taste check it from the middle to see if it is cooked or not.
Air Fried Food: Taste and Texture
Air fryers can be used to cook an easy ready-to-eat meal that is tasty and filling. Besides, the health benefits make it preferable to traditional frying. Despite the texture similarity to usual fried things, it is not the same.
For example, air fryer fried chicken tastes best when it is prepared from frozen chicken. Normal chicken when air-fried has an oven-baked crispy taste. The texture isn’t that crunchy when compared to the deep-fried one.
The reason is that air fry ingredients can only use a dry rub, not a wet batter.
