One other tip for healthier fries or potato wedges is - the larger you cut the potato pieces the less fat they absorb from their surface i.e. a potato cut into small fries/chips absorb more fat than the same potato cut into larger pieces.
BTW. I never deep fry, I cook them in a shallow pan on top of the stove or spread out in a tray in the oven, with a light coating of olive oil on them (olive oil is a mono-saturate oil).
Fried food are no doubt tasty.We can eat fried foods also but ones in a blue moon.Continuous intake of this kind of foods can cause so many health problems including excess fat,heart problem,cholesterol,eye problem etc. But boiled foods are too much healthy.And when you will start having it regularly,automatically we will forget about fried foods.
It does not really matter, ladies and gentlemen, what cooking oil you actually use. Cooked oil changes its structure and its usefullness. It's just some oils burns faster than others, that's it. if you want a healthy meal - do not cook it! Eat it raw or boiled/steamed. There is no way you can make frying healthy, unless you are doing it on a grill with an open natural fire(real wood) without any oils as our wild acestors did.
I get asked this question a lot for some reason. When you go out to a fast food chain or even at home making a homemade meal. Do you eat your French fries first or your burger first? As for me I always eat my French...
