They say you shouldn’t shop hungry, the same advice rings true for recipe development.
I have had a really productive day, I know this because I realised at 3pm that I hadn’t eaten yet… so I opened the cupboard and I saw the bag of those new ‘low carb’ potatoes staring me in the face, and I just knew I had to finally get around to doing an aioli recipe.
As far as hot chips with aioli goes, this is actually really healthy because of the use of premium oil and airfrying/oven baking; and, there are no hidden nasties in the aioli, unlike what most pubs/restaurants serve from a bottle.
Put garlic into mixer bowl, chop for 3 sec/speed 9/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
Insert butterfly, add yolk, mustard, lemon, honey, salt and pepper to mixer bowl. Mix for 1 min/37°C or 100°F/speed 4/MC on.
Set mixer to 3 mins/37°C or 100°F/speed 4 and VERY slowly start drizzling oil into bowl. Take the full 3 minutes to do so. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Scrape bowl out and set aside.
Chipotle Chip Recipe
Soak sliced potatoes in cold water for 10 mins. Drain well.
Put potatoes into mixer bowl, cover with cold water and a pinch of salt, cook for 10 min/100°C or 212°F/slowest speed/reverse/MC on. Allow to cool to warm.
In a bowl, coat potatoes with the oil and then cook in the airfryer for 20 min/200°C or 400°F, giving them the occasional shake. You can also bake them in a very hot oven for 30-40 mins.
Put the salt, chipotle and paprika into a large bowl and when the chips are cooked, chuck them in there and give them a good coating. Serve with the aioli for a really delicious snack.
You can get the chipotle powder online from Grandmas Pantry (http://bit.ly/1LL80cI). If you cant/wont get the chipotle powder, you can substitute with smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper... but I really recommend the real stuff. This will keep in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days tops - this is because of the chopped raw garlic and the risk of salmonella poisoning. I would like to credit Light Yummy for the original airfryer chip method I used and adapted to include the Thermomix and seasonings. Thank you, great recipe 🙂 Bellini UsersAioli Instructions Use blunt blade for this recipe. At step 2 & 3 use speed 3 if you're using an Intelli. Chipotle Chip Recipe Use blunt blade for this recipe.
