1. Firstly, prepare your chips. wash and chop the potatoes into chunky chip sized chips and add to large saucepan of cold water.
2. Bring the chips to the boil and boil for 3 minutes before draining through a colander.
3. Place the drained chips back in the saucepan and place back on the heat for a minute to dry out the potatoes, keeping the saucepan moving to make sure the chips don’t stick. Drying out the potatoes will mean the chips are crispy and delicious.
4. Once the chips have dried out, remove the saucepan from the heat and add the flour and mix gently before adding the oil and salt and pouring out onto a baking tray. Make sure you use a baking tray big enough so that the chips are not on top of each other. Otherwise you will have some soggy chips.
