Fried Potatoes (Patates Kizartmasi)
3 potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced
1 cup oil for frying
½ tsp salt
Place the potato slices in a bowl filled with water and leave them for 5 minutes. Then wash and drain. Leaving the potatoes in water will take the excess starch from the potatoes and they will be crispier. Over high heat, heat the oil and place the potatoes in the sizzling oil. Fry them till they turn golden brown and place them on a paper towel and sprinkle salt on top. Place them on a serving plate and serve warm.
