Servings: 6 People
- Peel and rinse the potatoes in clean cold water.
- Carefully slice them into thin strips using a sharp knife or a chip cutter.
- Place the cut chips into a large bowl and allow to soak for at least an hour. (This pulls out the starch in the potatoes and prevents them from sticking).
- Drain the water when ready to cook.
- Transfer the chips onto kitchen paper of a large kitchen towel and thoroughly dry them.
- Using a deep saucepan
- Add a few inches of vegetable oil to a deep saucepan over a high heat until it reaches 150C.
- Cook the chips in batches in the oil until the are soft. Will be about 4-5 minutes per batch. You are just starting to cook them at this stage.
- Transfer each cooked batch onto paper towel to drain excess fat.
- Once all of the chips have been cooked once, turn the heat up on the oil until it reaches 200C.
- Once the oil has reached that temperature start to fry the batches again.
- Cook the batches until golden brown and crisp.
- When cooked remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
- Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
- Using Deep Fat Fryer
- Similar to above except you should be able to cook them in fewer batches possibly in one go.
- Once cooked at 150C remove and turn up to 200C and repeat the process.
