Beer-battered cajun fries
Crispy delicous beer battered fries.

1kg potatoes

260g plain flour

1 tbsp Cajun spice

2 tsp garlic salt

2 tsp onion powder

2 tsp paprika

2 tsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

2 x 330ml bottles of Amstel Radler beer

Sunflower oil for frying

Peel and cut the potatoes into thin sticks.

Soak the potatoes in cold water for at least 1 hour (or

up to 8 hours) to remove the starch.

Mix the flour, spices and beer to create a thick batter.

Drain the chipped potatoes and add them to the batter, mixing well to coat each piece of potato.

Heat the oil in a chip pan to a high heat.

Cook the chipped potatoes in 3/4 batches cooking until they are golden and cooked through.

This can take anywhere from 4 - 6 minutes.

You can use tongs to gently separate the fries while they are cooking.

Remove the fries from the oil and allow them to drain on a paper towel-lined plate while finishing

the remaining batches.

Serve immediately.
