Spiced Potato Wedges

I am a fan of potatoes and have never rejected one in any form. It’s such a versatile vegetable that pairs a vegetarian or non vegetarian dish so we’ll plus stands out as a wonderful hero.

I got an order for wedges and though I have added them in my baked dish have never exclusively fried them. Decided to give it a go and it turned out super yum. Just pair it wiht some Southwest sauce and you are good to go


4 big potatoes
1/2 cup cornflour (remove one tbsp and add one tbsp maida)
1 tbsp Paprika or chilli powder 
1 tbsp mixed dried herbs – oregano, basil, parsley
1 Tsp pepper
Oil for frying

  1. Wash the potatoes well and cut it into wedges with the skin on.
  2. Add it to salted boiling water, let it boil for a minute and turn off the gas. Let it sit for another 4-5 minutes in that water.
  3. Drain in a colander and let it cool.
  4. Mix the cornflour, maida and dried herbs and chilli in a bowl. U can leave out salt as you can sprinkle it later.
  5. Rub a couple of spoons of oil on the potatoes and then coat it well in the flour herb mix.
  6. Heat oil for frying, and fry the potatoes in batches on medium to high flame.
  7. Remove when they get golden brown onto a tissue paper to soak excess oil.
  8. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle salt, toss to mix.
