    25 min

    These are deliciously different chips, with an extra crispy coating of maize flour and Cajun seasoning. Maize flour is available in larger supermarkets, African markets and health shops. (Don't use cornflour - it is not the same!)

    Excellent recipe - I tried to cut down on the oil and dipped pototoes in oil instead, coated them and roasted in oven. Turned out good also  -  31 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I couldn't find corn flour so I used all corn meal, they were fine.  -  07 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was okay. I didn't care for the cornmeal on the fries.  -  23 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
