A simple snack for every potato lover!
There is an annual sports week going on in my daughter's school. She comes early from the school. So I need to keep her lunch ready when she is back. Today I went for shopping and could not prepare anything for her.
There was bitter gourd for us, but she does not like it!
Without much thinking, I took potatoes and started peeling the skin. I did not had any idea, what will I make with the potato, but I was sure that it will be faster and any thing you make with potato it will come out nice.
When I cut the first potato, I saw that I have cut it into the shape of wedge. So, the other potatoes followed the first potato! But I did not wanted it more spicier as my younger one also loves potato. I thought of using less masala. Here is the recipe for Potato Wedges from my side,
Potato - 10 to12, small ones so the shape looks even and nice
Clove - 2
Cinnamon - 1 small
Dry ginger - 1/4 tsp
Jeera - 1/4 tsp, fry it for half a minute without oil
Oil - 2 tbsp
Apply salt to the potatoes and keep aside for 5 minutes if time allows you! I took the plate directly to microwave oven for 5 minutes on high. Till it was done, I fried the jeera. Mixed clove, cinnamon, dry ginger and jeera and crushed into a coarse powder.
(If you do not have microwave oven, no problem!! Cut the potatoes and put them in to a very hot water for 2 minutes. Drain the water immediately Apply salt. Keep it aside for 5 minutes.)
Then follow the next steps.
Heat oil in a kadai, add the coarse powder and immediately add the potatoes. Keep on frying till the potatoes becomes crispy. It takes around 15 to 20 minutes. The wedges were so crispy! I finished 1/4th of the plate before I served my daughter!!!!
I spread the ketchup on chapati, spread these wedges on it. Rolled the chapati and gave it to my daughter.
She enjoyed it a lot!
But I did not get time to decorate it for the photo!
My younger one was sleeping, she missed the plate!!! When I make for her, I will try to click a decorated photo and post it here!
10 -12 small potatoes!! it finished in 12 seconds!!!! So keep in mind about the quantity!
I was in a hurry and I prepared it for only one person with this qty. And do you believe that, this was first time that I prepared potato wedges at home!! I always had it in Pizza outlets!!
