Tips to make honey chilli potato recipe

 

  • Best Potatoes: The best potatoes to cook honey chilli potato recipe is the gold standard russet potato or choose any starchiest potatoes, which generally have tough thick skins. Avoid wax potatoes, as these have a lower starch content and become hollow when fried as the water evaporates.

 

  • Soak Potatoes: Soaking potatoes in cold water help potatoes to remove excess starch from the exterior and it also helps in creating the crisp exterior in our french fry.

 

  • Cooking Method: For crispy honey chilli potato fry the potatoes at 300 F to make them crispy and slightly golden brown from the outside. Make sure don’t burn the potato fries.

 

  • Choice of Oil: I suggest you can use any type of odourless and high smoke point oil for example vegetable oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, canola oil etc. Never use mustard oil which we most use in indian kitchen it drastically changes the flavour of french fries.
