Method

  1. Heat oven to its highest setting, ideally 250C/fan 230C/gas 9. Cut each potato into 1cm-wide slices, then into 1cm-thick sticks. Blanch in a large pan of boiling water for 3 mins, then drain well.
  2. Shake the potatoes out onto a roasting pan, drizzle with oil, ensuring each chip is evenly coated, then season well. Bake for about 15-20 mins, turning the potatoes at least twice, until golden brown and crisp.

My family loved it too.
However, it took me also twice as long to cook them....

I found it took twice as long to cook them - maybe I've just got a dodgy oven!

If you're counting your carbohydrate intake, you can substitute potatoes with turnips and sprinkle with some chilli powder; addictive!

I skipped the blanching part, heated oven to 200C/gas, and baked for 25 mins. Served with a dip made from curds, sour cream, crushed garlic and a pinch of salt.
