  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce thick
  • ½-¾ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • oil for deep frying if deep frying
  • 3 tbsp oil if shallow frying

FOR STIR FRYING:

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4-6 cloves garlic peeled and finely sliced
  • 1-2 green chillis sliced
  • 1 tbsp ginger cut into thin strips

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce thick
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp coarse pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce light

GARNISHING:

  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander or spring onions or both
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds

Instructions
 

PREPARATION OF THE POTATOES:

  • Boil the baby potatoes. If you are using big potatoes, let them cool and then cut into chunks or wedges.
  • Heat oil for either deep frying or shallow frying.

PREPARATION OF THE COATING:

  • Put the coating ingredients in a bowl. Mix the ingredients.
  • Add the potatoes and mix gently to coat the potatoes.

DEEP FRY OR SHALLOW FRY:

  • When the oil is hot fry the potatoes in batches till they are light golden brown. If you are shallow frying them, keep of stirring occasionally so that the potatoes do not stick to the pan. I prefer to use a non stick pan.
  • Keep the potatoes on the side till required.

PREPARATION OF THE SAUCE:

  • Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl.

PREPARATION OF HONEY CHILLI POTATOES:

  • Heat sesame oil in a wide pan over high heat.
  • Add the chopped chillis, ginger and garlic. Stir fry for a few seconds.
  • Add the sauce, mix well and cook till it begins to become thick.
  • Add the potatoes and mix gently so the sauce coats the potatoes.
  • Just before serving, garnish with the roasted sesame seeds and chopped spring onion/ coriander.

Notes

  • Adjust the spices according to your taste.
  • If the sauce becomes too thick add a little water to it. Be careful as one tbsp makes a lot of difference to the sauce.
  • Don't over boil the potatoes.
  • Roast the sesame seeds over low heat in a wide pan or tawa.
  • Add finely chopped onions and bell pepper along with the chilli, garlic and ginger if you like.
  • Add a handful of roasted cashew nuts for a more richer dish.
  • If you are using dark soy sauce, use only 1 tsp.
