Indulge in the ultimate comfort food with this easy-to-follow recipe for crispy homemade French fries complemented by a spicy chili sauce. Perfect as a snack or side dish, these fries are sure to be a hit with everyone.

Ingredients for French Fries:

  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking oil, for frying

For the Chili Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 50 ml water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Fresh coriander, chopped, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Start by peeling the potatoes and cutting them into thin, even strips to ensure they cook evenly and get that perfect crispiness.
    • Rinse the potato strips under cold water to remove excess starch, then pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.
  2. Seasoning:
    • Toss the potato strips in a bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt, making sure they are evenly coated.
  3. Frying the Potatoes:
    • Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in a deep fryer or a deep skillet over medium-high heat. The oil is ready when a small piece of potato sizzles upon contact.
    • Carefully add the potato strips to the hot oil in batches, avoiding overcrowding to ensure they crisp up nicely.
    • Fry the potatoes for about 10 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Adjust the time based on your preference for crispiness.
    • Remove the fries from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  4. Making the Chili Sauce:
    • In a small saucepan, combine the chili sauce, water, and sugar. Bring the mixture to a simmer over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
    • Cook the sauce for a few minutes until it slightly thickens to your desired consistency.
  5. Serving:
    • Place the crispy French fries on a serving plate. Drizzle or serve the warm chili sauce on the side for dipping.
    • Garnish with chopped coriander for a fresh, aromatic touch.

Enjoy your homemade crispy French fries with a tantalizing chili sauce, a perfect treat for any occasion!
