In the oven:Pre-heat the oven 250°C. Spread out the products over one layer. Fry the potato noisettes for about 15 minutes. That text was written on a potato noisette packet. I wonder why the verb fry is used. I look into the Harrap's, fry is used for frying in oil. There is no oil in the oven. Is there a reason I don't see or is it a mistake ?
