Cajun Fried Potatoes

Post by Hippieforever99 » Wed Feb 04, 2009 10:27 am

4 large white potatoes just scrubbed
boil salted water
1 pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 cups oil for frying

Cut the potatoes into 1" cubes. Add to boiling salted water. Cook just until fork tender but not mushy, about 7 minutes. Drain and cool. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the salt, peppers, onion and garlic power, cumin and cayenne pepper. Add the potatoes to the spices. Toss to coat all pieces evenly. You may do this much in advance and hold the potatoes as long as an hour before completing the dish. Heat about 1" oil in a deep skillet to about 350F or until a piece of potato sizzles when added to the oil. Add the potatoes. Fry until golden brown on all sides, turning frequently. Remove from fat, drain and serve immediately.
