8 pieces (4" x 1/2" each)
- CKD non-dialysis
- Lower Protein
- 2 medium potatoes
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
- 8 teaspoons ketchup
- Cut potatoes into 4" x 1/2" pieces and soak or double-boil to reduce potassium if you are on a low potassium diet. (See details in helpful hints).
- Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add potatoes to hot oil and cook for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove fried potatoes to a paper towel to absorb extra oil.
- Combine cumin, paprika and white pepper in a small dish or shaker. Sprinkle over hot potatoes and toss.
- Serve 8 fries with 2 teaspoons ketchup.
- Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
- Double cook method: Peel and dice or cut potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
- Leaching method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
- Dry potatoes well before adding to hot oil.
- If no salt added ketchup is substituted for regular ketchup sodium will be reduced to 7 milligrams per serving. (Avoid brands containing potassium chloride).
