How to make Chilli potato fingers

  1. Wash the potatoes under running water . Peel out the skin of the potatoes and discard it . Cut the potatoes into vertical strips and put it in a bowl of water . Putting the cut potatoes in the water , in which the potatoes are immersed completely , prevents the discolouration of the potatoes .
  2. Now boil the potatoes in a wide container with water .
  3. Let the potatoes boil Al dente and not too soft .
  4. Now drain these boiled potato strips completely . Keep it aside .
  5. In a bowl , add the chickpeas flour , salt , hot sauce , red chilli powder , black pepper powder , lime juice , corn powder , vegetable oil a spoon , water 100 ml and mix this to a fine smooth paste consistency . The paste shouldn’t be too watery and too tight . Baji batter consistency is preferred .
  6. Now dip the potato strip into the prepared paste in such a way the potato strip is coated well completely .
  7. Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying .
  8. Now drop these dipped , batter coated potato strips in the hot oil and fry for 5 to 6 minutes under low - medium flame . Don’t opt high flame frying as it wouldn’t give a crispy even fried finish .
  9. Fry all the potato strips similarly . Flip either sides and fry .
  10. Chilli potato fingers are ready to serve . Serve with any dip / sauce of your choice .

My Tip:

Check the batter consistency . Maintain low - medium flame while deep frying .
