For completely lower fries, spend money on a potato chipper – I’ve had mine for years and find it irresistible. And don’t be tempted to skip the soaking time because it removes the starch on the skin of the sliced potatoes, giving a super-crispy end. You can improve the sriracha so as to add extra of a kick to the mayo.


Prep time: quarter-hour, plus soaking time

Cook time: 35 minutes




291 kcal per serving


  • 1kg potatoes, peeled and sliced into fries
  • 80g Chinese leaf (Chinese cabbage), shredded
  • 1 pink pepper, finely diced
  • 60g onion, finely diced
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp candy paprika
  • 2 tsp rapeseed or vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

For the seasoning

  • ½ tsp candy paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • ½ tsp onion granules
  • olive oil spray

For the sriracha mayo

  • 2 tbsp gentle mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp fat-free pure yoghurt
  • 2 tsp sriracha

To serve

  • 60g grated cheddar
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • pinch of sesame seeds


  1. Soak the sliced potatoes in ice-cold water for no less than 45 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
  2. Preheat the air fryer to 190C for two minutes. Place the cabbage and pink pepper immediately into the air fryer basket. Add the onion, chilli powder, paprika and oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss to combine, then air fry for 8-10 minutes till the greens are tender. Halfway by cooking, add the garlic and shake the basket. Remove the greens and put aside.
  4. To put together the fries, add the paprika, garlic granules, onion granules and a few salt to the potatoes, and toss to coat. Spray just a few occasions with olive oil.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 200C. Place the potatoes immediately within the basket and prepare dinner for 22-25 minutes. Toss a few occasions throughout cooking. Transfer to a warmed plate.
  6. To make the sriracha mayo, whisk the mayonnaise with the yoghurt in a bowl, then add the sriracha. Add just a little water if essential to loosen it barely for drizzling.
  7. Reheat the cabbage combination for a few minutes and place it on high of the fries.
  8. Top with the cheddar, drizzle with sriracha mayo, and sprinkle with spring onion and sesame seeds.
