When we’re finally able to have dinner parties again, it’ll be a chance to show off all the tips and tricks we’ve picked up from TikTok in the last year.

And this one is perfect to impress friends – transforming a simple potato into something that not only tastes great, but can be stretched like an accordion.

It’s not just fun – making a few cuts in a particular way maximises the crispiness you get too.

The idea has been all over TikTok this week and one account, @Yashodhas_eats, showed off her recipe. While the finished product is impressive, it’s actually really easy to do.

She explains: ‘Peel your potatoes and cut them into cuboids. Cut them into 1cm thick slices, then cut horizontally, flip and cut diagonally.’

The key to the shape is not to cut right through on the horizontal and diagonal slicing to create the stretchy effect.

Next up, she boils for four minutes and creates the seasoning mix with 50ml oil, three tablespoon melted butter, half tsp salt, half teaspoon pepper, tablespoon of chopped parsley, half a teaspoon of paprika, a quarter of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and finally, half a teaspoon of garlic powder.

After whisking it all together, she brushes it onto the potatoes and then pops them in the oven at 180C for 40 minutes.

Halfway through the cooking time, she also adds parmesan for some extra flavour.

She says: ‘When done, you should be left with these fluffy, crispy on the inside potatoes.’

The video has had over 200,000 videos on TikTok and many commenters were impressed.

One said: ‘These look amazing. I’ve worked in kitchens for 15 years and rarely seen someone make something as simple as a potato look so amazing.’

Another added: ‘My mouth is watering right now.’
