Ingredients to make Honey Chilli Potatoes

  • 1/2 cup cornflour Oil, to deep fry
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4-5 Dried red chillies
  • 1 tbsp White sesame seeds/Safed Til
  • 1 tbsp Crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli Powder

How to make Honey Chilli Potatoes

  1. Cut each potato in half the long way, lay the cut side flat on the cutting surface and cut into 1/2-inch to 1/4-inch slices. Stack these slices and cut into the same width sticks. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
  2. After you are done with cutting the potatoes, soak them in warm water for around 25-30 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with paper towel or a clean kitchen towel. Arrange them in a single layer to air-dry for a bit. The drier the better.
  4. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and add red chilli sauce, cornflour and salt and mix well. Make sure the potatoes are well coated with cornstarch as then only the potatoes will turn crispy.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan and add the potatoes to it. Fry till the potatoes turn golden brown. (see notes)
  6. While the potatoes are frying, in another pan, heat olive oil and red chilies, sesame seeds and crushed garlic to it. The gas should be on low to medium flame.
  7. Once the garlic turns golden brown, add red chilli powder, soy sauce, vinegar and salt to it. Mix well and sauté for a minute.
  8. Now add honey and mix well. Add the fried potatoes to the sauce and toss it well.
  9. Add spring onion greens and garnish with coriander leaves.
  10. Honey Chilli Potatoes are ready to be served.

My Tip:

1. You can also use store bought parboiled french fries to save the soaking and cutting time of potatoes. 2. To make the potato fries more crisper, instead of frying them completely at once, you can fry them in two stages. For this, after frying your fries first time for about a minute, shake off the excess oil, place them on tissue paper for about 5 minutes and fry them again until they turn golden brown. Once they’re done, the outsides will retain a satisfying crunch, and the insides will be deliciously soft. 3. No matter how you serve, be sure to serve the fries while they’re hot. Do not let the fries sit for too long as they will turn sticky in that case.
