First of all, let’s handle the main ingredients nicely.
We will remove the skin and possibly wash them with clean water before cutting them into smaller cubes. The size doesn’t matter since we will be grinding them, but large pieces might be more difficult when you try to mash the potatoes.
Pour a cup of water into a pot and boil the potatoes for 10 minutes.
Apply pressure on the boiled pieces and grind them into a smooth paste.
Add the salt, the cornstarch, and the breadcrumb respectively, stirring the mixture well with each new addition.
Step 2: Shaping and frying
Pinch a bit of the potato mass and flatten it on a clear surface.
Shape the potato chips to whatever you like by using the right tools. In my video, I will form different emoticons with the rim of a round cup. The spare potato edge can return to the mass for later use.
You can use the end of a chopstick and a spoon to make the eyes and the mouth on each chip. Be creative with the expressions, and your children will love it!
Pour enough cooking oil to deep-fry the chips in your pan and the remaining task is too easy for you.
For ingredients and tools:
We recommend a nonstick pan to prevent the chips from getting stuck and burnt.
When you pick the raw potatoes, go for the firm and non-sprouted bulbs.
For the final product:
It’s the most delicious when you see the potato chips turn golden brown and serve them immediately.
Decorate the dish with some veggies and ketchup to make it more appealing.
The thinner your potato chips are, the crispier. Nevertheless, a too-thin chip will have little to no flavor. On the other hand, if you make them thick, they will absorb more oil than they should and affect the calories data tremendously.
After frying the chips, you might leave them on paper towels to remove excess oil. It will enhance the crispiness of a lot.
