Ingredients for Making Honey Chilli Potato

  • Potatoes (4-5 medium-sized, preferably Russet)

  • 3 tbsp cornflour

  • Salt to taste

  • Red chilli flakes (2 tsp or as per taste)

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup

  • 2 green chillies (slit and chopped)

  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil for the sauce

  • Oil for frying

  • 1 bell pepper (sliced thinly)

  • Spring onions (for garnishing)

  • 1 tsp roasted sesame seeds

Step 1: Preparing the Potatoes

Peel and slice the potatoes into thin wedges or sticks, resembling French fries. Soak them in cold water for about 20-30 minutes. This step helps remove excess starch, ensuring crispy fried potatoes. Drain the water and pat dry using a kitchen towel.

Step 2: Making the Honey Chilli Sauce

In a pan, heat vegetable oil and sauté the minced garlic until aromatic. Add the chopped green chillies and sliced bell pepper. Stir for a minute. Now, add soy sauce, tomato ketchup, red chilli flakes, and honey. Mix well until the sauce is smooth and slightly thickened. Set aside.

Step 3: Frying the Potatoes

In a large bowl, toss the potato sticks with cornflour until well-coated. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Once hot, add the potato sticks in batches, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan. Fry until they turn golden brown and crispy. Remove and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Step 4: Mixing the Potatoes with the Sauce

Reheat the sauce if needed. Toss in the fried potato sticks, ensuring they are well-coated with the honey chilli sauce. Stir on medium heat for 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld.

Step 5: Garnishing and Serving the Honey Chilli Potato

Transfer the honey chilli potatoes to a serving dish. Garnish with chopped spring onions and roasted sesame seeds. Serve hot and enjoy!

Tips for Making the Perfect Honey Chilli Potato

  • Ensure the potatoes are thoroughly dried after soaking to get a crispy texture when frying.

  • Adjust the sweetness and spiciness according to your preference by tweaking the honey and chilli quantities.

  • Always serve honey chilli potatoes immediately to maintain their crispiness.

Variations of Honey Chilli Potato

  1. Air-Fryer Version: For a healthier alternative, you can use an air fryer to cook the potato sticks.

  2. Honey Chilli Sweet Potato: Swap regular potatoes with sweet potatoes for a different flavor profile.

  3. With Proteins: Add paneer (cottage cheese) or tofu cubes to the sauce for added protein.
