Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - Gas 6 - Moderate)
  2. Half fill, (no more), a large pan with peanut oil
  3. Peel and slice the potatoes into 5 mm x 5 mm (¼" x ¼") strips of equal length
  4. Place the raw chipped potatoes into a large bowl of cold water as you prepare them
  5. When the oil reaches 165° C (325° F), drain the potatoes and pat dry with a towel
  6. Fry the chips for just 3 minutes, in small batches so the oil stays hot
  7. Drain and allow to return to room temperature
  8. Increase the heat of the oil to 190° C (375° F)
  9. Again, in small batches, fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes
  10. Drain cooked chips and place on a rack in the preheated oven until all of the chips are cooked
