The strategy for making crispy fries in an airfryer is really similar to deep frying:
- You need starchy potatoes for making great fries.
- Dehydrating the fries, before browning is a must, this you can achieve by frying multiple times. You need to first fry them at 110C for 15 minutes for the starches to set. Then when it’s cold to the touch, 140C for 15 min and then 180C for 7 min to finish. Remember to coat in small amounts of oil in between everystep.
- If you want a better result, instead of frying at 110C, you can parboil them in a salt+vinegar+water solution. This would help getting rid of the surface straches, and fortificatefortify the outer layer of the fries, so you get get a better crisp and the iconic yellow/golden-brown color.
