Steps In Making Crispy Potato Wedges

  1. Take medium or large size potatoes and thoroughly wash them, making sure there is no dirt on the skin. Now cut them into half and then further cut them into 2-3 halves. (Do not remove the skin, we need that for crispy texture) Similarly cut all the potatoes.
  2. Place a pan over medium flame and add around 4-5 cups of water and add all the potatoes along with 1 teaspoon salt and boil for 7-8 minutes or until 70-80% done. To check, insert and fork, the potatoes should be firm but not soggy.
  3. To make the batter, in a large bowl add refined flour, corn flour, rice flour, oregano, chilli flakes, garlic powder and 1 teaspoon salt and mix well. Now add little water at a time to make a batter, it should not be very thick. The consistency should be medium, more towards the thinner side.
  4. Now add the boiled potato wedges in the batter and gently mix them, till they are well coated with the batter.
  5. Place a frying pan over medium flame and add oil. Once the oil becomes hot, add 4-5 potatoes wedges at a time and fry till crisp and golden brown. It will take around 3-4 minutes.
  6. Immediately serve them hot with tomato ketchup or chutney.

Recipe Notes

  • Do not over boil else they will become soggy after frying.
  • Keep the skin of the potatoes for better taste and texture.
  • You can replace garlic powder with 1 teaspoon minced garlic.
  • Do not fry the potato wedges on low flame else they will absorb more oil and become soggy.
