    2 Fill (3/4’s full) a large pan with water & bring it to the boil

  3. 3.

    3 Add 1/4 cup of salt & 1/2 tbsp of baking powder (this is a very important ingredient - it will make your potatoes super crispy)

  8. 8.

    8 Pour the oil into a bowl (through a sieve)

  9. 9.

    9 Pour the infused oil you’ve just made into the potato bowl, add some more salt (this isn’t wholly necessary - it depends on your taste) & then grind in some pepper

  10. 10.

    10 Cover the bowl & vigorously shake the potatoes until the sides & all chuffed up

  11. 11.

    11 Put the potatoes on a baking tray, space them out evenly & bake at 200℃ (392℉) for 45 minutes (or until they’re really crispy & golden brown)

  12. 12.
