  • 10 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1-2 cups saffola vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds about 3 medium yukon gold potatoes , cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • kosher salt to taste


  • Place garlic and 1/2 cup of oil in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until garlic begins to sizzle. Let cook for 3-5 minutes. Do not brown. Strain, reserve both oil and garlic. Allow oil to cool completely.
  • Place garlic oil and remaining oil in a large skillet. Add potatoes. Oil should just cover the potatoes. Cook over high heat until oil bubbles. Allow to cook for 5 minutes or until the outsides become firm. Stir the potatoes. Continue cooking 15-20 minutes or until fries are golden brown. Stir occasionally while being careful to gently scrape any that stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Transfer fries to a paper towel lined plate with a slotted spoon. Season immediately with salt.
  • Mix reserved garlic with parsley. Sprinkle over the fries. Serve immediately.


If you want even more garlic, it is not totally unheard of to use a spoon to scoop up and eat what is ever left over after you finish the french fries. Enjoy!
