About the Recipe
Here I bring you another kid's favorite , Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes made with their favorite Potato fries. Sweet and Spicy potato fries goes well with any juice or beverage.
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 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 or in Air Fryer.
How to make Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes
Crispy honey Chilli potatoes as mentioned above, can be made with store bought fries at home.
To make at home, first of all we make crispy potato fries/fingers.
For potato fingers, cut potato in fingers/fries shape. Wash in fresh water 2-3 times. This washes away the extra starch from the potatoes. Pat dry with a kitchen towel or a paper napkin.
Coat nicely in cornstarch/cornflour and deep fry in hot oil, till it is just cooked.
Cool the potato fries and then coat again in cornstarch and fry again in hot oil. Double frying makes it more crispy and crunchy.
Prepare Honey Chilli Sauce
Mix the ingredients for the sauce.
In a pan saute garlic for few seconds and add the sauces.
Add the fried potatoes and coat it nicely in the honey chilli sauce.
Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped spring onion greens.
Homemade Potato fingers from Scratch
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.
You can also do the fries in Air Fryer.
