CRISPY HONEY CHILLI POTATOES

Want to try something different with your usual fries? This recipe is going to be the best thing you’ve tried. I’m not saying is all so simple, I’m saying this dish is worth it! Pair it up with anything and it still tastes bomb.

So, this recipe has two stages. First we make the crispy potato – the secret behind it is to fry it twice, with different marinates. And then we toss the crispy potatoes in the honey chilli sauce.

Yields : 3 servings
Preparation time : 15 Minutes
Cook time : 25 Minutes
Total time : 40 – 45 Minutes

Ingredients :

CRISPY POTATO:
Potato – 4 (Peeled, sliced)
Vegetable oil – For frying

1st coating:
Chilli powder – 2 Teaspoon
Ginger Garlic Paste – 1 Teaspoon
Chilli sauce – 1 Teaspoon
Cornflour – 2 1/2 Tablespoon
All purpose flour – 2 1/2 Tablespoon
Salt – 1 Teaspoon

2nd coating:
Cornflour – 2 1/2 Tablespoon
All purpose flour – 2 1/2 Tablespoon
Water – 1/4 cup

Sauce:
Sesame oil – 2 Tablespoon
Garlic – 3 cloves (finely chopped)
Red chilli flakes – 2 Tablespoon (Depends on how spicy you want it)
White sesame seeds – 2 Tablespoon
Vinegar – 1 Teaspoon
Soy sauce – 1 Teaspoon
Tomato Ketchup – 1 Teaspoon
Honey – 1 tablespoon (Can add more depends on how sweet you want it)
Chilli paste (or sauce) – 1 Tablespoon
Water + cornflour (slurry) – 1/4 cup + 1 Teaspoon
Toasted sesame seeds – 1 Teaspoon (Garnish)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Wash and peel the potatoes before slicing them into fries.
  2. In a bowl add all the ingredients of the first coating and mix well. Add the sliced potatoes into the bowl and coat well.
  3. Heat oil in a pan. One the oil is well heated, add the potatoes one by one into the pan (one by one because it prevents potatoes from sticking to the pan as well as each other).
  4. Once the fries are half cooked, take them out and keep them in a tissue. (This takes out the excess oil).
  5. In the same bowl used for the first coating, add all the ingredients for the second coating. Next, take the half cooked potatoes and dip them into this coat before frying them again, one by one till the pan is fully covered. (Frying potatoes twice, makes it crispier) Remove the potatoes once fully cooked and keep it on tissues to soak the excess oil.
  6. Now we go on to make the honey chilli sauce. In a pan heat oil on a medium low flame. add the finely chopped garlic. Let it fry till its golden brown, then add the chilli flakes. after 2 minutes, add the sesame seeds and mix for a minute.
  7. In a small bowl, add vinegar, soy sauce, chilli sauce, tomato ketchup and honey, mix them together and add it in the pan. Increase the flame to high now.
  8. Make the slurry and pour it in when the sauces start to boil. The sauces will start thickening up. That it when you have to add the potatoes.
  9. Let the potatoes be coated with the sauce and then remove it from the heat.
  10. Garnish with toasted white sesame seeds. Pair it with either a fried rice, or a spicy noodle dish. Yum!

I hope you like these super crunchy and crispy honey chilli potato.
