Peel and slice the potatoes into thick strips about 6 x 1 cm.
Place the cut potatoes into a bowl, soak in cold water for 30 minutes drain, and dry very well pour into a deep fryer or a deep heavy saucepan some sunflower oil or we now use an oil called "Again & Again" see note.
Heat the oil to about 165 degrees C or 330 degrees f: Place the potatoes a handful at a time and fry for about 2 minutes, remove the potatoes and drain on a paper towel. They will be pale, limp, and easy to crush with your fingertips. Leave to cool before the second frying.
For the second frying, heat the oil to 185c/365f degrees. Fry the chips in small batches in a frying basket if you have one. Fry until the chips are golden brown and crisp, remove from the oil shaking off any excess oil and drain on a paper towel. Serve them at once. Do not cover them or they will go limp and soft.
Note; Again & Again, This long life frying oil contains No Cholesterol and is high in mono-unsaturates and is rich in Omega 3, which makes it a perfect option for consumers using cooking oil on a regular basis.
