Hello friends. In this review, we will talk about a dish loved by many since childhood - our hero is fried potatoes with carrots and onions. Even fried potatoes themselves are a real hero of any feast. We decided to go further and offer you a recipe where fried potatoes are even with carrots, which will give them an excellent color and onions without which a unique aroma is impossible. But before we start cooking, let's remember how we learned about this wonderful dish and talk a little about the intricacies of its preparation.
We want to surprise you right away. It turns out that fried potatoes were not invented by the French, as is commonly thought, but by the Belgians. Rumor has it that such a potato was first cooked in the valley near Liezh. The locals were very fond of frying fish in oil, which they had previously cut into small cubes. However, in winter, when the water froze, there were many problems with fishing, and everyone thought about what to fry instead of fish. It was decided to try frying potatoes, sliced just like fish.
Much later, a Belgian named Frite, we will decide to sell such potatoes to take away. As you probably already guessed, the dish got its name thanks to it. But we all know the international name of such a potato and it sounds literally like "french fries". Why? It's that simple! This is what the Americans called the potato. The American soldiers were treated to this wonderful dish by the Belgians, but those who spoke French. That is why they came to the conclusion that they were dealing with the French, which means that this dish is also French.
Today in America, French fries are eaten in huge quantities and by everyone from small to large. They love fried potatoes in England no less. There, about 15 tons of such good are eaten a year. And the rest of the world, believe me, are not lagging behind. A salad with which fried potatoes, carrots and even celery are served are universal favorites and heroes of any feast. Well, what is interesting what we have prepared for you today? Well then, go ahead.
Contrary to popular belief, fried potatoes are not so scary and are unlikely to make you sick and fat. Of course, this dish is not about a healthy lifestyle, but if you cook it correctly, it will have a minimum of fat, namely, no more than 5%. And this, imagine, is much less than in many low-fat products. And, in order to make the potatoes not so fatty and harmful, we advise you to cut it not very finely, so it will absorb less fat.
And in order for the potatoes to turn out especially crispy, on the advice of the creators themselves, the Belgians, they should be fried twice: the first time after frying, put the potatoes on a paper towel, and then fry them again in oil. It will be tastier this way. And we advise you to prepare a salad in which one of the ingredients will be beets, so fried potatoes and carrots will sparkle with new colors.
