My husband and I are always working on wasting less money these days. We have a big mission to buy a house in the next 18 months and want to put down a 50% deposit. This is no small amount as we live in the South East. We have been working to save money on takeaways and one of the ways we’ve been doing so is by eating fewer takeaways. I decided to make airfryer chips recently, to accompany a slow cooker kebab recipe that I’ll be writing about soon. We’ve had these a few times now and I’ve really perfected the recipe.
- 600 grams Potatoes more if you have a generous appetite
- 1 tsp Salt & pepper
- 1 tbsp Plain flour
Peel your potatoes. Use a potato chipper and by slicing the potatoes in half first they take just seconds to chip.
Rinse the chips in cold water. Pat them dry on a clean towel or using kitchen towel.
Dust the chips with flour and salt & pepper. You may not need the quantities I have mentioned, these are just for guidance.
You can I add herbs or a chopped chilli if you want a kick. Chinese Five Spice is a wonderful way to boost the flavour of these airfryer chips with minimal effort.
Cook the airfryer chips for 12 minutes at 160C.
Then turn the airfryer up to 200C for a further 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them, at least twice, during this time as depending on the size of your chips they may need as little as 5 minutes. This is the ideal method to make airfryer chips that are crisp on the outside but fluffy inside.
If you want airfryer chips that are even crisper then add a little spray oil to the fries when you turn up the temperature. I transfer them to a bowl to do this, to shake them and ensure even coverage.
