Cooking fried potatoes with garlic:

Step 1: prepare the potatoes.

First of all, we put on a strong fire a pan filled with half-purified water, and bring the liquid to a boil. At the same time, we take medium-sized potatoes and thoroughly with a hard kitchen brush, rinse it under a stream of cold running water from sand and any other contaminants.
