Making no-oil crispy fries is a healthier alternative to traditional fried fries, and they can be just as delicious! Here’s a simple recipe to prepare them:


  • 4 large potatoes (russet or any variety suitable for frying)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional, but helps with crispiness)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Any other desired seasonings (paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.)
  • Cooking spray (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 460°F (240°C). Preheating is essential for crispy fries.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes: Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. You can peel them if desired, but leaving the skin on adds extra nutrients and texture. Cut the potatoes into even-sized fries.

  1. Soak the Fries: Soak the cut fries in cold water for about 30 minutes. This helps remove excess starch, which can lead to soggy fries. After soaking, drain and pat the fries dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels.
  2. Season the Fries: In a bowl, toss the dried fries with cornstarch (if using), salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings. Make sure the fries are evenly coated.
  3. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Arrange the seasoned fries in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they’re not touching each other too much. This allows for even cooking and crispiness.
  4. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, flipping the fries halfway through the cooking time. Keep an eye on them towards the end to prevent burning. The fries are done when they are golden brown and crispy.

  1. Serve: Once the fries are cooked to your desired crispiness, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy your delicious no-oil crispy fries with your favorite dipping sauce or as a side dish to your favorite meal!

Note: If you prefer, you can also use an air fryer to make these fries. Simply follow the same steps but cook them in the air fryer according to its instructions, usually at around 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.
