- Take 2 medium sized potatoes, wash it thoroughly and prick it with a fork or skewer.
- Keep the potatoes in pressure cooker with water and place it on the heat. Wait for 3-4 whistles of the pressure cooker.
- When the pressure cooker completely released it’s pressure automatically, then take the potatoes out and keep it in the air to cool it down.
- When it completely cools down, remove its skin and mash it nicely with the masher or with your hand. Any chunk of potato should not be left there.
- Now add, cornflour, panko breadcrumbs, onion-garlic powder, crushed thyme, and white pepper, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix it nicely to make dough from it.
- First, divide the dough into two parts. Then take a wooden board, dust some flour to the board. Place one part of the dough on the board.
- Now dust some flour from the top and start flattening the dough by patting it with your palm. To keep the surface smooth later use a rolling pin, though the thickness is up to you, but don’t make it too thin.
- Take the skewer or toothpick to draw the ghost over the flatten dough.
- When the shape of all ghosts done, then slowly remove the excess dough out of it.
- After that, use your finger to smooth every edge of the ghost, to give it a perfect look.
- Now take the straw for making its eyes and for making its mouth. Where little bigger and round shaped eyes are required, the mouth should be little longer just looks like a ghost face.
- Take a baking tray, dust some cornflour to it and keep it aside.
- Then slowly take out the ghost from the board with help of the knife and place it to the dusted baking tray.
- Once the baking tray is full of ghosts, then dust some cornflour from the top and place it into the freezer for 10-15 mins.
- When all the ghost potato fries are done, follow the same procedure as mentioned above and keep it in the freezer.
- After 10-15 mins, take out the ghost fries from the freezer and keep it aside.
- Place the pan on the medium heat, pour the oil for deep frying in the pan. Let the oil be hot.
- Once the oil gets heated up, slow down the flame to the low heat and put all the fries one by one.
- The pan should not be crowded with fries, then it might be broken.
- Fry it till it gets nice golden color from both sides. Then raise the flame to medium heat and fry it for 30-40 secs before taking it out from the pan. (see the tips portion below)
- Now, place the fries on the paper towel lined plate. Serve it hot with tomato ketchup and mayonnaise or dip of your choice.
- Enjoy your Halloween party with this ghost Halloween snacks or ghost potato fries Halloween snacks.
- Don’t boil the potatoes without its skin, that soaks more water and your dough might be bit sticky.
- If you feel the dough is still sticky then dust a little more cornflour to the board, but not too much.
- If the ghosts aren’t in a perfect shape or they are not in the same size, don’t mind just go for it. Believe me, kids love it.
- Always fry it in a low flame, medium or high flame may be a cause of broken fries. Once it gets golden color from both sides, raise the flame to medium. That will help to get the exact crunch and remove the excess oil the fries soaked in.
- As I said in my other crunchy deep fried recipes, that before frying, put it in the freezer to get the exact crunch from it.
- Even you can prepare this potato ghost (without frying) just before one day of Halloween and store it in the refrigerator. And can fry it just before the party starts.
