LOOKING for: Papas Fritas
Does anyone know of a recipe for Papas Fritas (I've googled) where the potatoes end up like a little balloon?
I had a recipe several years ago but that was before several moves (and purges). From what I can recall, the potatoes are sliced about 1/8 inch thick, deep fried for just a few seconds at about 375F, cooled, then refried at a much higher temp. During the second frying the potato poufs into a round bite of deliciousness.
The resulting potato ends up with an air pocket inside and a salty crunchy outside like a crispy potato balloon.
They were absolutely amazing and one of the things I ate with every meal in BA.
Are you familiar with anything like that?
