These chips are hot and flavourful and go well on their own or with any dish. They are made in all my local chineses and I decided to try make them myself. I think this recipe is very good. Defiantly one to try if you like spicy food.

Only thing I must add is this: 'The more paprika the hotter the chips will be', is incorrect, if you use a hot paprika they will be, but the common paprika found in supermarkets is mild.

Cheers for the recipe! Sorry to be a stickler for grammar though, but a few corrections: "sause" should be "sauce" "fryed" should be "fried" "chilles" should be "chillies" "untill" should be "until"

If you intend to be a stickler, then saute should be sauté and perhaps sugar not suger? I hate to be a pedant but you’re correcting spellings not grammar; an example of incorrect grammar being the missing hyphen between home and made (chips). Thanks though, good effort. GREAT RECIPE!

You also missed “Frozen chips is best”. The use of frozen chips is best because frozen chips are the best. Well they certainly are for this great recipe!

'are' best! But they are not...although to be authentic you're probably right to choose them.

Been looking to try making these myself for a while - will be giving this a go! But surely this recipe should have been spell checked before being made live??

Wow! Amazing. My family loved these so much I was asked to make them again two days later. Wee tip - I used an empty spice jar and added equal quantities of the Chinese Five Spice, Salt, Sugar and Paprika (1tbsp each) and used this to shake over the chips. Also, I was unable to find garlic and chilli sauce, so used chilli sauce and added a lot of garlic to the liquid at the start of the cooking process. I also chopped up some peppers and tossed them in as well. Really delicious. Well done Cairin for this recipe.
