"Potatoes are coated in a spicy mixture of corn flour and Cajun seasoning then deep fried until crispy. Very simple and really crunchy. I like mine extra spicy so I soak my cut potatoes in hot sauce for a few seconds before shaking them in the dry batter." — SUNNYBC

russet potatoes, cut into fries
oil for deep frying
salt to taste
Excellent recipe - I tried to cut down on the oil and dipped pototoes in oil instead, coated them and roasted in oven. Turned out good also
This was okay. I didn't care for the cornmeal on the fries.
I couldn't find corn flour so I used all corn meal, they were fine.
I was specifically looking for a spicy recipe, and I came across this one and had to try it. I followed the recipe exactly, but also used a couple of tablespoons of GROUND FRESH CHILI PASTE (in a jar in the asian food section)to coat the potatoes before putting them in the corn flour mixture. Then I deep fried them in PEANUT OIL until browned. My only problem was I couldn't get them really crispy. They were brown but not crispy. Not sure what the problem was. Anyway, I still loved this recipe and can't wait to make it for the family too.
i omitted some spice as to not to get too hot. these fries came out just right for me. i wouldn't change a thing!
These fries had a good taste but was not crispy
These were wonderful and very easy to make, my picky kids loved them!
We tried this before Super Bowl day and 10 folks "LOVED them "
