These French-fried potatoes are seasoned with fried cilantro.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 quart oil for frying
- 3 large potatoes, julienned
- 3 cups chopped fresh cilantro
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
Place 1/3 potatoes in the fryer, and fry for about 5 to 8 minutes, or until almost done. Add 1/3 cilantro, and continue frying for 1 minute. Remove from oil, and drain on paper towels. Skim off any remaining cilantro. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
