Honey Chilli Potatoes

I have been craving for good indo-chinese food for a while now. Every time a good looking dish comes up on television or on net, I am tempted more than ever to try one. But, finding a good indo-chinese restaurant in my part of the world is a little difficult. To overcome the temptation and satisfy my craving, I tried the simplest honey-chilli potatoes dish. Thanks to numerous food blogs and videos, I was able to recreate the dish. Honey-Chilli potato

I was so tempted to taste it that for the sake of photographing it I relied on my reliable Samsung Galaxy S3 phone camera. Not bad!!!

I must say, it was Yummmmy!!!! The potatoes could have been much crunchier, but I blame it on my lack of patience to fry it further.

Without much ado, here’s the quick and easy recipe:

My recipe:

Honey-Chilli Potatoes
Author: Neetika
Recipe type: Appetizer, Indo-Chinese dish
Prep time:  5 mins
Cook time:  20 mins
Total time:  25 mins
Serves: 2-3
Ingredients:
  • 2 Potatoes peeled and cut into the shape of french fries
  • 2 Crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1Tbsp tomato Sauce
  • 1 tsp red chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 2 Crushed garlic cloves
  • 2 tbs honey (in case you don’t like it much sweet then put 1 tbs honey)
  • 1 tblsp oil
  • 3 tsp sugar

For Garnishing: few coriander leaves or spring onions/onions

Method

1.Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Deep fry potato fingers till crisp and golden. Drain on an absorbent paper.
2.Heat two tablespoons oil in another non-stick pan. Add crushed garlic cloves. Saute for a minute.

3.Add spring onion or onions till they are translucent.

4.Add red chilli sauce, vinegar, red chilli powder, tomato sauce, sugar and honey. Mix well and cook for half minute.

5.Add salt and mix well. Lower the heat and add fried potato wedges. Mix well, add spring onion greens and mix again.

6.Garnish with coriander leaves and eat it hot!

Tips:

1) For crispier french fries, soak the raw potato wedges in ice-chilled water for 10-15 minutes.

2) Mix the fries and sauce just before serving. Letting them sit longer might wilt the fries and lessen the crunchiness.

Try and let me know how it went. Happy eating everyone!
