5 red potatoes (more if you wish)
canola oil for frying
1 tsp. salt
Wash and peel the potatoes, then cut the potatoes in half. Place the potato halves in a pot--cover them with water and add the salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then cook until potatoes are fork tender (about 20 minutes). Drain the potatoes but DO NOT RINSE. In a frying pan add about 1/2" of canola oil. Turn heat to medium high. Place the potato halves one at a time into the oil until the frying pan is full (don't overload the pan). Fry the potatoes on all sides (turning as necessary) until potatoes are golden brown on all sides. As potatoes get done, take them out one at a time and place them in a serving dish. If you have too many potatoes, fry them in separate batches so they don't overcrowd the pan.
