Nigella Lawson has shared her unconventional method for cooking the perfect fries.

There’s something about homemade chips – and when you master the secret to cooking them perfectly, you’ll never want to eat shop-bought ones again.

But there’s some debate about the best way to cook them.

For some, deep frying is the only way, while others prefer to par-boil the potatoes first before baking them in the oven.

Instead of partly cooking the potatoes and heating the oil first, the celebrity chef puts raw, chipped potatoes into a baking tray of cold oil, before heating them up to cook the fries.

Sharing a snap of some delicious-looking chips to her Instagram, the TV chef wrote: “Tuscan Fries – inspired by @chefcasella – are #recipeoftheday. My cooking method is unorthodox but effective: deep-frying without so much of the stress.”

Guiding her followers to the full recipe on her bio page, the cookery writer explained that though it may seem unconventional, this method of cooking fries really works.

“This is revolutionary: you put the raw chipped potatoes into cold oil, then heat it up,” she wrote. “It sounds crazy, but it works. You’d think it would make them unbearably greasy but in fact you end up with crisp, oil-free fries of utter fabulousness.”

The ingredients for Lawson’s perfect fries simply include potatoes, vegetable oil, garlic, fresh herbs and sea salt.

Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to offer their praise for the unusual chip cooking hack.

“These look absolutely a-m-a-z-i-n-g and scrumptious,” one impressed Instagram user wrote.

“Wowsers they look incredible! I’ve never tried Tuscan fries before but will be now! Thank you for sharing,” another commented.
