  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 450 g potato about 2 medium-sized potatoes
  • 3 dried chilli deseeded
  • ½ teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
  • 2 fresh chilli sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1 teaspoon black rice vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or to taste


  • Peel the potato then cut it into julienne strips. You may use a food processor or a julienne peeler to achieve similar results (regular grater is not recommended).
  • Rinse the potato strips under tap water to remove excess starch. Drain them very well.
  • Heat up a wok on a high heat. Pour in the oil, then add dried chilli and Sichuan peppercorn. Leave to sizzle until fragrant (do not burn them).
  • Put fresh chilli, garlic and potato strips into the wok. Stir fry constantly until the potato is cooked (should be still a bit crunchy).
  • Add black rice vinegar and salt . Give everything a quick stir then dish out.
  • Serve it warm with rice, along with other meat/vegetable savoury dishes.
