10 mins to prep

  1. Step 1

    Prepare your favourite topping (or all of them!)

  2. Step 2

    Heat vegetable oil to 140°C.

  3. Step 3

    Chop the potatoes into lengths, to get nice and thick chips. Rinse under cold water to remove excess starch.

  4. Step 4

    Place the chips in the hot oil for 8 minutes to cook through, and take out of the oil and place into a tray. You don’t want too much colour on the chips at this stage. Let rest for 10 minutes to cool.

  5. Step 5

    Raise the temperature of the fryer up to 180°C and re-fry the chips for a few minutes until they are crisped and golden brown.

  6. Step 6

    Drain for a few minutes to remove excess oil. Pour into a tray and season with your topping of choice. Or, serve with all of your toppings in separate bowls and let people season with their favourite combinations!
