Triple Cooked Chips

Triple Cooked Chips



  • 1 Large will yield 4-8 chips depending how big you want chips. Large Floury Potatoes (Maris Piper, Rooster)
  • Enough to fill 1/2 a saucepan( if no deep fat fryer) Oil


  1. Cut potatoes into chips, 2cm x 2cm as best you can. Cross section is important but length isn't.
  2. Wash in cold water, like you would rice, until water is clear.
  3. Simmer potatoes in water for about 30 mins. You want to get the potato to the point of fissureing and cracking. If they are still a perfect oblong they won't get very crispy.
  4. Remove very carefully, place them on a wire rack so water drips off and air can get to all sides. The very delicate potatoes will harden a little as they cool. There will no doubt be a few breakages, so make more chips than you need.
  5. Place these in the freezer for at least an hour.
  6. Par-fry now at 130c for 5-7 mins in your pan of oil or deep fat fryer, make sure they don't colour. Remove, place back on rack and freezer again for 1 hour.
  7. Now fry at 180c/190c until golden. Serve with salt and vinegar, sauce mayo or whatever your preference is.
If  you find some of the less cracked potatoes aren't particularly crispy, a great cheat is to dust them in flour just before the final frying at 180/190c.


  1. I got so much knowledge today. Thanks for this awesome post. I am sure, with your points in mind, my next batch of chips would be way better! Wish me luck!!

      Crunchy chips are my holy grail, doesn’t matter what I’m cooking if the chips aren’t right, the dish isn’t right. They are definitely worth the extra stage though.

  2. These look tasty, and I feel like I learnt something today! Thanks for this

  3. Couldn’t agree more – twice cooked days are over.

  4. Delicious

    If only more places would do this!
