Baked Potato Wedges
Anything deep-fried seems to me the only kind of snacks that most people love. But to be honest it does take a toil on your waistline. So this year I am exploring on my journey of healthy and guilt free snacking. Its been in my long term list to do potato wedges at home since my husband loves any kind of snack made with potatoes. The other day I made these baked potato wedges and it turned out to be so good that I almost gobbled the whole batch and made another batch for my husband. 

Potato wedges are a bigger variation to French fries usually served in diners and in fish & chips. Unpeeled potatoes are cut into wedges and marinated with spices along with oil. Later baked/ fried and served along with ketchup/ any dipping sauce. The outer is usually crisp and inside is soft making it so enjoyable. I have shared a basic Indian spiced version of potato wedges you can almost use any kind of seasoning that you prefer. 


Verdict - Totally addictive and make sure you make a huge batch. Also these are way better and lighter to treat yourself compared to the deep fried versions.

BAKED POTATO WEDGES RECIPE

Recipe Source - Own  Serves - 2  Prep time - 10 mins  Bake time - 20 mins 


Ingredients 


Medium- large potatoes - 3 

Water - 3 cups Salt - to taste 
Hing - 2 pinches 
Paprika - 1 tbsp 
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp 
Oil - 2 tsp (I used olive oil) 

Method 


1. Wash the potatoes (with skin) and scrub them with a brush to remove all traces of sand/ dirt. You can peel any thick skin that looks ugly. Now Chop into wedges and set aside 


2. In a saucepan boil water along with salt. To this add the chopped potato wedges and let it boil for 5 minutes. Now drain all excess water. 


3. Line the wedges on a kitchen towel to remove all moisture. 


4. Pre-heat oven to 180 C/ 350 F for ten minutes. Marinate the spices to the potatoes (paprika, salt, turmeric, hing) Line on a foiled tray and bake for 20 minutes turning side half way through.

Tip 1


Make sure you do not peel the potato skin, wedges usually are made along with the skins


Tip 2


You can use any kind of flavouring like - salt & pepper, oregano, rosemary, thyme and so on


Tip 3


Half cooked potatoes take less time to bake and you can be sure that the potatoes are well cooked inside instead of having a raw taste

    1. Kaveri :) boiling the potatoes does make it soft and warm inside, and yes it does make the bake time less. Do give it a try sometime :) thanks for the comment
