"No need for a mandoline – these home-made chips are made with a peeler! They’re really easy and a nice thing to be able to say you did yourself. Serve with your choice of fancy dip, or even with a sandwich!” – Khanya Mzongwana



  • 2 large potatoes
  • oil, for frying
  • Woolworths salt and pepper seasoning, to taste
  • Woolworths aïoli, for serving
  • Woolworths smoked snoek terrine, for serving

Cooking Instructions

1. Shave the potatoes into paper-thin slices using a potato peeler.

2. Bring the oil to a medium heat in a large saucepan or wok and place the chips into the oil. If you add too many at the same time, they’ll stick together and not cook fully in the middle.

3. Keep stirring as the chips fry to ensure they cook evenly. Once they turn a light golden brown and are crisp all the way through, remove from the oil and drain in a bowl lined with kitchen paper. Cook the remaining chips in the same way.

4. Season while hot and serve immediately! I served mine with Woolies’ smoked snoek terrine and aïoli.
