1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon citric acid
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
3 Agria potatoes
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
neutral oil for frying


1.Mix together the sugar, citric acid, salt, cayenne pepper and paprika to make the seasoning for your chips.
2.Wash and slice potatoes to about 1mm thickness – a mandolin is a very handy tool here.
3.Cover with water, add apple cider vinegar and soak for at least 30 minutes.
4.Drain water from potatoes and pat dry.
5.Pour oil into a large pot and place over a high heat.
6.Once oil reaches 190°C, carefully drop in potato slices.
7.Cook in batches until crisp – about a minute and a half – then drain on paper towels before transferring to a large bowl and tossing in seasoning.
