Unfortunately, the reality of the delicious fast food chippies or take away options…it is often made using heavily processed vegetable oils such as palm. I wont go into the ethical issues in this blog however the dirty oils are often exceeding our daily fat intake. Do this often enough and you may find yourself dealing with poor health outcomes.
Heart Health, we recommend saturated fat be only 7% of your total energy intake. For example, for an average adult intake of 8700 kilojoules, 7% is about 16 grams of saturated fat – National Heart Foundation of Australia

Total Daily Recommended Sat Fat 7g
Let’s also take our other daily foods into consideration – staples such as full fat yoghurt, milk and cheese all contain saturated fats so you can see how it may quickly add up and hence the importance of being a more conscious consumer for fast foods and opting the homestyle cooking as best you can.
What gives my Curry Seasoned Potato Chips the Nutritional Tick of Approval?
Potatoes are actually a very healthy vegetable. Plenty of important key vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, B12 and Potassium. Also an affordable vegetable to feed families and super versatile to cook with.
I am in love with homestyle potato chips, especially the curry spiced style that adds a side of warming, aromatic healthy goodness to my winter meals.
Curry Seasoned Potato Chips Recipe
- 3 Ruby Potatoes skin on, (portion it for 1 medium potato per person)
- 1-2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2-1 tsp curry powder (the amount is varied to how you may tolerate a little heat)
Preheat oven to 200C fan forced.
Cut your potatoes into 2cm chips and place all ingredients into a bag and massage thoroughly.
Lay onto a baking tray with a little space between each chip. Bake for 45mins turning at the 30min mark.
Enjoy with a fresh salad and lean protein such as fish, lamb steaks or chicken.
