Healthy French Fries - made in the Microwave

August 15. 2014


2 Medium Size potatoes
Salt and Pepper powder to taste
1 Tablespoon oil


In a oven proof bag place the potatoes with a tablespoon of water.  Lightly fold the bag and microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Remove immediately and place the potatoes in cold water.  When cooled , peel the potatoes and cut in fine matchsticks evenly sized. Place them in microwave proof flat dish and lightly sprinkle a pinch of salt and little oil , mix well and arrange them placed slightly apart.  Microwave on combination mode - Microwave + Grill for 3 minutes.  Remove and turn them, again Microwave on the above mode for 3 minutes, if you find it brown on the edges and cooked they are ready, or else place them again in combination mode for another minute or two.
Sprinkle pepper powder and serve.    These taste better than the deep fried ones.  We enjoyed them with Tiranga Rice.  You too try them and enjoy.

Note: These French Fries are not as crisp and brown like the deep fried ones ( see pic) but still taste better than the fried ones.

After you see that the fries are done keep them in the microwave, standing time 2 minutes.
