    Homemade chips with a secret. The cornflour gives the chips a lovely crunch. You can bake or deep fry these chips.

    • 225g (8 oz) potatoes, peeled and cut into chips
    • 2 teaspoons cornflour
    • oil, for frying

    1. Plunge the cut potatoes into a pan of boiling water to parboil, about 3 minutes. Drain well.
    2. Toss the drained chips in the cornflour and coat thoroughly. Add a few drops of water to moisten, if needed.
    3. Heat the oil in a pan to 160 degrees C. Once hot, add the chips and fry for about 7 minutes, till browned. (Alternatively, spray the chips with a bit of oil, place on a greased baking tray, then bake in a hot oven till crispy, turning once.)

    The corn flour did add crispness. However, It also added a starchy flavor to my oven baked fries. Perhaps frying them would be the answer.  -  08 Feb 2015
