Full Recipe:


  • 3 large potatoes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Preparation: Begin by peeling the potatoes and slicing them thinly with a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife for uniform thickness.
  2. Soaking: Soak the potato slices in cold water for about 30 minutes. This crucial step removes excess starch, ensuring your chips turn out exceptionally crispy.
  3. Drying: After soaking, drain the potatoes and pat them dry thoroughly with paper towels. This step is vital for achieving the perfect crispness.
  4. Frying: Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large pan to 350°F (175°C). Fry the potato slices in batches to avoid overcrowding, which ensures even cooking and crispiness.
  5. Seasoning: Once golden brown and crispy, use a slotted spoon to transfer the chips to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt while still hot to enhance their savory flavor.
  6. Cooling: Let the chips cool before serving to allow them to crisp up further.
