Lets just say we ate these straight from the wok. Because there was noone to stop us. But if you are in a family situation where that is not acceptable, I can’t help you.
If you have eaten honey chilli potatoes, what really stands out is how crisp these potatoes are, in spite of being tossed in the sauce. They can really stand out for their crunch. And that’s really what this recipe is all about.
We really went all out to achieve that texture and taste. To make sure that soggy potatoes don’t make it to the table because thats what makes these honey chilli potatoes so awesome. And you know me, when we are on a mission, we really go all out. So this recipe was tested multiple times with different batters, different proportions, timings etc. And finally we came to the conclusion that the key is to batter fry the potato fingers twice.
how to make really crispy honey chilli potatoes
The key to making super crispy honey chilli potatoes is to batter fry the potato fingers twice. Deep frying them only once results in potatoes that don’t hold their shape and get soggy after a few minutes. So the potatoes are first coated in a dry mixture, deep fried till they are almost cooked and then cooled for a bit. They are then coated in a second coating of batter and deep fried again till they are really crisp outside and cooked perfectly inside. The last step is to coat them in a sesame honey chilli sauce that adds an extra layer of texture and is sweet and spicy.
These are not particularly saucy and they shouldn’t be. Because they are not meant as a side. They really are an appetizer or more like a bar snack to serve with beer or mocktails. So what you should do is hand out some toothpicks and let people dig in, or if your friends are like ours, they’ll just use their fingers.
