  6. 2 teaspoon Salt

Second Coating:
  1. 3 tablespoon All Purpose Flour
  2. 3 tablespoon Corn Flour
  3. 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  4. 2-3 tablespoon Water

For the Sauce:
  1. 2 tablespoon Oil
  2. 1 tablespoon finely chopped Garlic
  3. 1 teaspoon Red Chilli Flakes
  4. 3 tablespoon White Sesame Seeds
  5. 1 teaspoon Vinegar
  6. 1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
  7. 2 tablespoon Tomato Ketchup
  8. 1 1/2 tablespoon Honey

  • Wash potato fingers well in running water and set aside. This removes any extra starch in the potatoes.
  • Mix together corn flour, all purpose flour, chilli powder, chilli paste and salt. Coat the potato fingers evenly with this flour mix. Heat oil in a wok or karahi and deep fry the potato fingers in batches till the potato is half cooked. It’s important that you drop one potato finger at a time in to the oil so that they don’t stick together (watch video above to see how to do this). Remove the potato fingers on a tissue lined plate and let them cool.
  • For the second coating, make a medium thick batter with all purpose flour, corn flour and pepper powder by adding just a few tablespoons of water. Dip the half done fries in this batter and fry again in hot oil till crisp and golden. Drain on a kitchen paper and keep aside.
