You don’t need a deep fat fryer to make those twice-cooked chips that you love from your favourite chippy. You can heat rapeseed or vegetable oil in a large heavy-based pan, but make sure you keep the lid nearby just in case of fire. If your oil does catch fire, simply pop the lid on and this will extinguish it. Under no circumstances try and put out a chip pan fire with water. Never leave a hot pan of oil unattended.
HOW TO MAKE TWICE-COOKED CHIPS WITHOUT A DEEP-FAT FRIER
Step 1: peel your potatoes and cut into 1 cm thick chips.
Step 2: place into a large bowl and cover with water. Leave to soak.
Step 3: drain well and pat dry on a clean kitchen towel.
Step 4: heat a large, deep heavy-based pan of rapeseed oil to a temperature of 130 C
Step 5: par-cook the chips for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan.
Step 6: heat the oil to 190 C and deep fry the chips for a further 4-5 minutes, until golden and crispy.
