Battered Chips recipe

Not the healthiest of chip recipes, but the batter makes the chips wonderfully crispy once cooked. They're even crispy when they are reheated in the microwave!


  • 1kg Maris Piper potatoes
  • 125g plain flour
  • 125ml water
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 250ml vegetable oil

Method of Preparation:

  1. Slice the potatoes into chips and place into a pan of cold, salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 7 minutes, then drain and pat dry.

  2. Meanwhile, make the batter by mixing the flour, garlic salt, salt and paprika together. Add water, stirring all the while, until you have a smooth batter. Heat the oil until hot enough for a piece of batter dropped into the oil sizzles and turns golden brown.

  3. Dip the chips into the batter and drop into the oil one at a time. Fry the chips until golden brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen paper before serving.

You could also add some dried mixed herbs to the batter to give extra flavour. This recipe serves around 8.
