Serving Change
  • potatoes
  • sunflower oil for deep-frying


Cut the potatoes into 5 mm thick slices, then into 5 mm wide sticks. Soak in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain and dry well. Heat oil to 160 ºC. Place potatoes in the fryer basket and lower into the oil. Deep-fry for 5-6 minutes until soft, then lift out and test to see if they're cooked using the point of a knife. Heat the oil to 190 ºC. Lower the basket back into the oil. Deep-fry for 3-4 minutes until crisp and brown. Drain on kitchen paper. If you don't have a deep fryer, heat oil until a chip placed into it sizzles gently. Maintain this heat and cook chips for 5-6 minutes until soft, then increase temperature and cook until golden and crisp.
