  • 5 idaho potatoes
  • 1 container sunflower oil for deep frying
  • Sea salt
  • Paper to make serving cones

Andalouse Dip:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp green bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp onions finely chopped


For the Fries:

  • Peel potatoes and cut into fry shapes (about ½ inch thick and 4 inches long).
  • Fill a bowl with water and add the raw potatoes. Let sit for a few minutes until the water becomes cloudy, empty the bowl, refill with fresh water, and put the raw potato fries back in. Continue until the water remains clear.
  • In a large pot, heat oil to 325 degrees. Add the potatoes (about ¼ at a time) and fry for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oil and let drain on paper towel. Ensure that oil comes back to 325 degrees before adding your next round of fries.
  • Allow the potatoes to cool completely-- for at least a half an hour. When the potatoes are completely cooled, reheat the oil to 375 degrees.
  • Sprinkle salt on the potatoes. Put them in the oil again, this time frying to your liking (about 3-6 minutes).
  • Remove, drain, salt again, and serve immediately with andalouse sauce.

For the Andalouse Sauce:

  • Mix all and let sit for one hour or overnight.
