Potato Chips/Wedges

P1190435

I have always loved chips (fries) but don’t make them so often as we try not to deep fry so much these days.  When I first came to UK, that’s all I ate at lunch time as there wasn’t a huge choice of vegetarian options where I worked.  They tasted great dipped in ketchup or vinegar. . Being young and carefree – I didn’t worry about the calories at the time and if I had gained any weight  I would have blamed the chips and not my eating habits.

We  have now worked out this recipe for making chips or wedges which is slightly healthier as we bake these fries/wedges and it’s become just as favourite with us now.

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 sliced potatoes
  • 2-3 heaped tsps corn flour (If you were making this whilst fasting – do not add the corn flour)
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2 tbls sunflower oil

Method:

1.  Wash the potatoes and remove them into a mixing bowl.

2.  Add the rest of the ingredients – corn flour, garlic salt, pepper and the oil and mix well.  (You can add more ingredients likes herbs, chilly powder or even garam masala if you like the taste)

3.  Part cook the chips in the microwave on high for 4-5 minutes.

4.  Lay them on a baking tray and cook for 4 minutes on 170°C (325° F or Gas mark 3)

5.  Check and turn the chips/wedges and cook for a further 4 minutes.  When these are cooked to perfection – you will never go back to fried chips/wedges.

6.  Serve the chip/wedges hot on their own with ketchup or with baked beans. P1190436
