Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 350g (plus extra for dusting) polenta
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup grated gouda
  • 100g butter cut into cubes
  • 2 tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • oil for deep frying
  • aioli to serve

 Grease and line a baking tray (such as you would use for making brownies or a slice).

Heat milk and stock until almost boiling, stirring to prevent milk from burning.

Slowly pour truffle polenta into liquid, stirring with a whisk as you do so.

Cook over a low heat for approximately 20 minutes, until extremely thick. Mix shouldn’t have a grainy consistency when tasted. Remove from heat.

Add salt, pepper, butter and grated cheese and stir thoroughly, until all ingredients have been incorporated.

While mix is still warm, transfer to lined baking tray, ensuring surface is flat and thickness is consistent. Allow to cool, then refrigerate for at least three hours.

Preheat oil in deep frying or heavy, deep frying pan to 175°.

Turn polenta out of tin and slice into 1-inch thick fingers. Roll in extra polenta until coated, then submerge carefully into hot oil.

Cook in small batches for 5 minutes, or until golden. Take care not to agitate the chips while they cook, as the polenta mix will soften when re-heated and remain quite fragile until a shell is created.

Sprinkle polenta chips with salt flakes, and serve alongside a dish of Delouis Aioli.
