Crispy Potato Wedges Recipe



Potato wedges, so delicious with a lovely crunchy coating which has lots of spices and taste so crispy and yummy.


I added lots of herbs in this to make it very flavourful. But you can use just salt, pepper and oregano. Coating the potatoes in flour mix will make it so crispy. I used buttermilk for the wet coating, you can use egg as well. 


Many people precook potatoes first, but i dont do that. I just drop them and fry in the oil, it does cook the potatoes. the potatoes are crispy outside and fluffy in the middle.


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins 
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

Medium Small Potatoes - 6
Buttermilk or Yogurt - 1/2 cup (dilute yogurt with some water)
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 3/4 cup
Oil for Deep Frying

For Spice Mix:

Parsley - 1 tsp
Basil - 1 tsp
Rosemary - 1 tsp
Oregano - 1 tsp
Chilli Flakes - 2 tsp
Marjoram - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Pepper - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Citric Acid - a pinch

Method:


Take all the spice mix in a blender and pulse it few times. Set aside.

Now take buttermilk and flour in separate bowls, add half spice into buttermilk and other half into flour. 

Now take your potatoes, wash them well. Cut it into wedges. 

First dip it in buttermilk and then in flour. Set aside in a wire rack so it dries a little.


Heat oil for deep frying, drop it in hot oil and fry on high heat for few mins, then reduce the heat and cook for few more mins. It will take around 5 to 7 mins.

Drain it on some paper towel. 

Serve.
