#228 Chips

Sunday Kitchen #28

Kutchan is famous for snow and potatoes so the mascot is a skiing potato. Its name is Jyatakun. (This is a mistake – it should be Jyagatakun).
Jyagaimo is Japanese for potato.
The potatoes here are really cheap and delicious so I’ve been eating them a lot.
Today I made chips.
This was a real test of my cooking skill.
First I washed the potatoes.
Then I put heated up some oil.
Then I cut the potatoes. Then I cooked them in the oil for 10 minutes.
I checked them a few times. It looked like they were doing alright.
After 10 minutes I took them out of the oil and put them in a bowl with some kitchen paper.
And I added some pepper, salt, basil, curry powder and chili. It sounds like a strange combination – but it’s actually really good. You should try it.
