This recipe for potatoes from Sailu's Kitchen was so simple that I bookmarked it and opted the healthy way of preparing them as mentioned on her site,,,,where in potato wedges/ fingers are being baked before tossing them in sauces. [ I am novice baker and trying to learn the basics of baking by preparing simple recipes like this]
This is one yummy recipe, not just kids but adults also would like to have it again and again :)
Potatoes -2 [large size]
Chilli powder - ½ tsp [ optional you can also use red chili sauce 1-2 tsp, I omitted this step in order to make it less spicy for kids]
Garlic cloves - 4 , finely grated
Tomato sauce - 2 ½ tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1/2
Red chilli sauce - 1 tsp [you can omit this again if u want it less spicy]
Soy sauce -1 tsp
Tomato sauce - 2 tbsp
Vinegar - 2 tsp
Garlic cloves - 2, finely chopped
Honey - 2 ½ tbsp [ you can reduce or increase as per your preference for sweetness in the dish]
In a bowl mix salt, red chilli powder [optional red chilli sauce], tomato sauce, grated garlic, olive oil. Wash the potatoes, peel and chop them into wedge shaped pieces or fingers as in French fries. Marinate these wedges with the above mixture and keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes. Adjust the salt if needed.
Line the baking tray with heavy duty aluminium foil, grease it little bit and spread the potato wedges/ fingers on the tray. Bake them at 200 -210 degrees C till potatoes are done and cooked. It may take around 30-40 minutes time. Stir the potatoes in between. [ you can deep fry/shallow fry the potato wedges as an alternative method to baking]
Heat some olive oil in a wok, add finely chopped garlic and stir till it becomes light brown. Next add chili sauce, tomato sauce, soy sauce, vinegar one after the other and bring it to a boil. Add the baked potatoes, honey and toss it well till the potato wedges/ fingers gets coated well with the sauces. [for about 2-3 minutes on medium flame]. Garnish with chopped spring onions [or coriander leaves] and toasted sesame seeds.
Relish them warm as starters or as a side dish [ U can see the dish with dosa in the pic below...my kids enjoyed eating them like this]
Happy cooking !!!
