Step 1

Peel and slice your potatoes, for the best results make them long and asymetric so they are average vertically but fat horizontally.

Boil for 20 minutes until the surface begins to soften, rinse and allow to cool

Step 2

Pre heat your cooking fat to 180-200 degrees before placing your chips inside to cook, the cooled chips going directly into hot oil will allow the crispiest surface with minimal oil absorbtion.

Step 3

Once cooked to your liking strain and immediately place onto a baking tray, sprinkle over a mix of salt, pepper five spice and a dash of chilli powder, ensure all surfaces are coated and flip the chips around in this mixture for a few seconds

Step 4

Transfer the chips onto a piece of kitchen roll to absorb the remaining oil, and once dried feel free to add a further sprinkle of the special salt mixture for added flavour.

Step 5

If you wish to prepare these in advance cool in the fridge and re crisp in the oven for an extra crispy portion of chips

Ensure your guests know you've already salted the chips to avoid too much salt intake, greasy chips go best with vinegar, these are crispy chips and are best eaten as prepared.
Triple cooking in the oven makes this ideal for parties and pre preparing large portions ready for service as a quick reheat and recrisping makes these very special and fast to prepare. If you are recrisping ensure you repeat the salting process to ensure no flavour has been lost.
