You know what they say? The way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Well, we think the two—heart as well as stomach—are important aspects for one’s well-being. Speaking of which, Valentine’s Day is approaching and if you’re not up for anything fancy, then that’s perfectly fine! Nothing like some good food with your better half in your home sweet home, right?
For starters, here are three dishes that are not at all time consuming but get all your taste buds active during your hunger pangs.
First, pick out the potatoes with less starch so that they can provide a crispy feel to the dish. Peel the potatoes and soak them in water after which you will have to cut the potato in the form of fries. Boil the potatoes in hot water until they become a little soft. Put them in the freezer so that when it is fried in oil, they are well cooked and the have the right amount of crispy texture. Take them out once they are frozen and put them in hot oil. Fry until cooked. Lastly, drain out the excess oil and eat them hot with some sauce, if you’d like! Don’t forget to add some salt in the end, too.
