Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes are one of the favourite appetizers or starters especially for vegetarians. Served at parties and restaurants this crispy sweet and spicy snack is a filling and delicious appetizer. Kids especially love these and you can adjust the spice level as per their taste.

For vegan-friendly version, use Agave Nectar instead of Honey.

These Crispy Honey Chilli Potato fingers are the second in series for Kids Party Starters  that I am linking to the  group Blogging Marathon#102  for week 4 Day 2 for the theme Kid’s Birthday Party Treats.

These are very easy to make and can be made with store bought fries or homemade fries. If you are making these for a big party or get-together, you can make from the store bought frozen potato fries.

These taste best when served hot, on keeping for long time these can become soggy. Reheating these in microwave is a strict no no from my side. You can reheat these in oven on pre heat mode.

How to make Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes

Crispy honey Chilli potatoes as mentioned above, can be made with store bought fries at home.

The main thing that one should keep in mind when making these at home is that they should remain crispy for long and don’t get soggy as soon as these are served.

Key to make Crispy fries at home .. 

  • Cut all the fingers of almost of the same size,
  • then keep freshly cut potato fingers in cold water for about 30 minutes.
  • fry the potato fingers twice coated in batter of cornflour.

For Store-bought Frozen Potato Fingers..

When running short of time while planning a big party, make these crispy snacks with store bought frozen French fries or potato finger pack.

Store-bought frozen potato fingers are already fried once and packed, all we have to do is fry the frozen fries till crisp then coat in the sauce mix with sesame and chilli. Do not thaw the frozen fries before frying. Add to very hot oil, fry till golden brown and crisp, and then cook in sauce mix with sesame and chilli. Be very careful while frying as the hot oil sputters when we add frozen fingers to hot oil.

Let’s see in detail how to make Crispy Potato fries at Home and with Store-bought Potato fingers..
