Place cut potatoes into a large bowl of cold water. Soak for 10 minutes. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the maize flour, polenta and Cajun seasoning. Shake the bag to blend. Drain the potatoes, but leave them wet. Place the chips in the plastic bag with the seasoning, and shake to coat.
Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 190 C / Gas 5.
Cook chips in hot oil for 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the fryer to kitchen paper to drain. Season with a small amount of salt.
