Potato`s should be cut in 15mm square lengths. no need to soak them, no need to do anything except salt them, Heat the oil to 190 degC and lower the chips into the oil. When they begin to turn brown lift the basket and reduce the heat to around 160- 170degC wait a while for the heat to adjust then lower the basket, cook. The initial cooking should prevent the oil from soaking the chips.after around 5 minutes test the chips for softness, if soft turn heat back to 190 degC until browned to your taste. Traditionally only salt and malt vinegar is added, but please try anything you like. I find that the addition of chilli in any quantity spoils the subtle flavours of the dish you are eating.

Just parboil the potatoes after cutting,otherwise the potato will not get cooked inside.

Its a good one. U could add lemon juice from one lemon to the salt water and then soak the potatoes in that for 10 mins. This will prevent the chips from becoming brown when frying.
