    Perfect chips

    Otherwise known as Covid chips because this is the only occasion you'll ever have enough time to make the fuckers.



    They're currently in the fridge after simmering them in the first stage. If they're half as good as the chips we used to have in Holland and Belgium, who also follow a similar but not so arduous method, I might even devote another Saturday to them.

    Watch this space.

    ^^ Over prepared, IMO, and probably very oily.


    The perfect chips: Cut, wash/soak, par-boil, dry, fry.

    South America is where potatoes originated strangely enough.

    Give me spuds any day over rice.

    Absolutely not.

    They were really crispy on the outside and light in the inside.

    But it did take the best part of an afternoon!

    Indeed.
    Those that make too much of a simple food, and it's preparation, are probably easily fooled by many things of like promotions.

    Feast your eyes on these. As per the video, parboiled and twice fried.

    Apparently, there are 800 types of potato here, so I imagine we do. The one I used was called pastusa.

    Nope, chips are chips

    8 minutes from frozen to plate via the air fryer.



    My mutton rendang arrived shortly after and was plonked on most of those, with a nice piece of fried chicken that you'd have appreciated Ray.

    We put frozen chips in the air fryer and they came out tasting like cardboard.

    I'm glad you liked them, hal. That's the only thing that counts.

    As for me, they look just like I imagined they would. Awful. Over-crispy and full of oil. I don't like them that way, but each to their own. Glad you liked them.

    They do look rather orange. What are they coated in? Cayenne?

    They need dressing, like these from KGB

    There's no coating. That's just the crispy outside.

    What the fuck is that thing on the left?
