Ingredients

  • Potatoes - 4 medium-sized
  • Oil for frying - 2 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Vinegar to taste

Instructions

Step 1: Cleaning and Cutting the Potatoes

Wash the potatoes under running water to remove any dirt or impurities. Peel the potatoes and cut them into long, thin slices of uniform size. The thickness of the slices should be around ½ cm. Rinse the sliced potatoes in cold water to remove excess starch.

Step 2: Preparing the Frying Oil

Take a deep frying pan or a deep fryer and fill it with oil. Heat the oil to a temperature of 180°C. Make sure that the oil is hot enough before frying the potatoes, as it will ensure that the chips are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Step 3: Frying the Chips

Add the potato slices into the hot oil slowly and in batches. Make sure that the oil is not too hot, as it will burn the chips. Fry the potatoes till they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove the chips from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a paper towel to remove any excess oil.

Transfer the chips to a bowl and season them with salt and vinegar. Toss the chips well to ensure that they are evenly coated with the seasoning. You can also add other seasonings like peri-peri powder, garlic powder, or paprika for an extra kick of flavor.

Step 5: Serving the Slap Chips

Serve the hot and crispy slap chips with your favorite dipping sauce or condiment. Slap chips can be enjoyed as a snack or as a side dish with burgers, steak or grilled chicken.

Congratulations, you have made your very own delicious slap chips! Enjoy the meal!
