Another way that potatoes do not absorb so much oil is to boil them first 10 minutes, already cut into strips, so they lose the hardness. Then let them drain well so do not skip the oil and fry them until they acquire the usual consistency.

6- Nutritional suggestions:

The potato is a starch, by what we recommend, for a better digestion, always combine it with some vegetable (vegetable, salad, fruit) and some protein (meat, fish, egg, vegetable). In addition, if we make this combination, the effects of its consumption will be much more beneficial for our body. On the other hand, we do not recommend combining them with other starches or flours, like sandwiches, pizza, pasta, etc., since that would make difficult digestion, would overload our bodies and help create us unwanted fat deposits.
