    Prepare the potatoes

    Gather all the potatoes in one plate and wash them properly first. Once all of the dirt is removed, peel their skin carefully. Some people like to make the fries with the skin, but that depends on you. However, most of the times, fries are made without the skin, so it is ideal to get rid of it. Now, allow the potatoes to dry and then slice them with the help of a knife.
