Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 medium baking potatoes, like russets (about 4 pounds total)
Directions

In a large bowl stir together salt, cayenne, paprika, and coriander.

In a 4-quart heavy kettle, heat oil over moderate heat until a deep-fat thermometer registers 325 degrees.

While oil is heating, cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks. Fry potatoes in oil 1 1/2 minutes (potatoes will not be golden) and with a slotted spoon transfer to brown paper or paper towels to drain.

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. Return potatoes to oil and fry until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer fries with a slotted spoon to clean brown paper or paper towels to drain and toss fries in spice mixture.
