Many of us have been discovering the joys of ‘fakeaways’ and while I’m still working on perfecting my mains, I think I’ve got some of the all-important side dishes tied down.
With that in mind, I can’t wait to share this easy Masala Chips recipe with you! After Scotty Brand reached out and asked me to create a tasty chip recipe using their Scotty Brand Chippy Chips.
As with all of my recipes, I aim to keep them affordable and accessible which is why we’re using some great Scotty Brand frozen chips, a Spice Pots spice blend in ‘Tandoori Masala’ and some ingredients that you probably already have in the house.
The main substance of this dish is, of course, the Scotty Brand Chippy Chips, which can be cooked in two ways: oven and deep-frying. Personally, I prefer to oven cook mine as it is a little healthier but if you are looking for that traditional chippy chip taste, you may prefer to deep-fry.
The Scotty Brand Chippy Chips are made using only 2 ingredients: homegrown Scottish potatoes and sunflower oil. They are actually the only frozen chips that you can buy in stores, that are made with homegrown Scottish potatoes and they are so fluffy, so delicious and it really begs the question as to why Scottish potatoes are not more commonly used.
For that masala taste, I used Spice Pots. Spice Pots have a selection of spice blends that are 100% natural curry spices and can create easy authentic Indian recipes at home. This is great if you don’t often cook with a lot of spices because you can buy these small and convenient tins, filled with all of the amazing flavours that you need to create some amazing Indian-inspired dishes.
I love this masala chips recipe because it offers a little bit of sweet and spicy flavouring. The Scotty Brand Chippy Chips mixed with the ‘Tandoori Masala’ Spice Pots blend which has a medium heat, using 11 different spices and mixed together with the peppers and sauce, makes a wonderful and moreish side-dish.
You can find Scotty Brand products sold in your main supermarkets across Scotland such as Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Co-Op and Scotmid.
Scotty Brand offers the finest seasonal produce including potatoes, Ayrshire new potatoes and seasonal berries, prepared vegetables, fresh soup, delicious sausage rolls, succulent smoked salmon, chilled coleslaws and potato salad.
