Honey Chilli Potatoes is an Indo-Chinese dish where deep fried potato fingers are tossed in honey and chilli sauce. It can be served as an appetizer or starter with a drink or as a side dish to fried rice or noodles. These are quite popular in Indian restaurants. But mostly they add MSG or Ajinomotto to the dish which is harmful for health. So why not prepare it at home without adding these?
You can always make crunchy potatoes and they will not be soggy. First things first. One should always slice the potatoes in uniform fingers. Choose big potatoes for getting the desired result. There are two methods to make crunchy potatoes. One is to deep fry at a go. The other is to double fry, where in the potatoes are fried half way through at first, removed from oil and again fried in high heat. This will enable the fingers to not soak in too much of oil.
I love to binge eat. Not only in front of the television. But also when I work or blog. It isn’t good, I know. But there are days when I indulge in some. Today was one such day and that’s how this picture came up, with my Rangroute journal, some post-its and my favorite key-chain. Meanwhile, you can check out with Rangroute for some fabulous handicrafts from India. They will definitely brighten up your day.
