FOR THE SEASONING
In a small bowl combine all the ingredients for the seasoning and set aside.
FOR THE CHIPS
Chop the potatoes into chunky chips. Transfer to a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Salt the water and bring to a boil.
Boil the chips until soft but not falling apart. Drain and leave to steam dry.
In a wok heat some vegetable oil over a medium heat. Stir fry the pepper and onion until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the fresh chillies and stir fry for another 2 minutes. Add the rice wine and cook off the alcohol smell until reduced.
Fry the chips at 170c until golden. Add to the wok and toss in the veggies and rice wine. Sprinkle over the seasoning and keep tossing until coated.
Top with the spring onions and serve. Enjoy!
