From time unknown, French Fries have been deep-fried in oil. This method is not healthy, but it does taste so good! Mouthwatering taste, crispy, crunchy, and hot. Yes, you have to eat it while hot. Now, if we are thinking about cooking it without oil, one question comes to our mind. Will it taste good? Of course, it would! It will taste even better without too much fat. Although we have to spray a bit of oil over the potatoes before we bake them, it is necessary. Dipping and spraying are two different things. You deep fry potatoes; they will become soggy after a while.

On the other hand, when you bake them without oil, the extra moisture slowly goes away, and the potatoes become super crispy and crunchy from the inside out. Therefore, we can say with confidence that oven-fried French Fries are better than deep-fried French Fries. They are less messy and oily; and healthier if they are baked in the oven.
