Potato Braids Are A Super Crunchy Snack That's Worth The Effort
Yet another potato-based snack has gone viral on TikTok. This time, users are buzzing about potato braids, a twist on french fries that's crispy, salty, and fancy-looking.
To make these braided snacks, mash boiled potatoes to a very smooth consistency. Use a sieve to strain the mash, or beat them with a hand mixer to get any lumps out if needed.
Next, add salt, corn flour, and olive oil to the mashed potatoes and mix thoroughly. This mixture is added to a piping bag so you can pipe it out in individual braid shapes.
Pipe three strands vertically and parallel to each other on a board, connecting them at the top, and braid them by crossing the strands over the middle, alternating left and right.
Once braided, fry them in hot oil until golden and crispy. You can serve these super crispy snacks with ketchup or mayonnaise, or sour cream, cheese, chives, and bacon.
