As for today, being Monday, the norm is to post Upwas recipe. So here is my version of potato wedges which is perfect for a fast.
- 2 large potatoes cut into wedges
- 1 tsp amchur (dry mango) powder
- 1 tsp jeera (cumin) powder
- 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp oil
- a few drops of lemon juice
- fresh finely chopped coriander (optional)
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Dry the potato wedges using kitchen towels.
Sprinkle a teaspoonful of oil on a baking tray. Layer the potato wedges on top. Push the tray in the oven and bake for ten minutes on each side till the wedges are crisp on each side.
Remove the baking tray and sprinkle the dry spices and salt on the wedges. Now sprinkle a little lemon juice and toss the wedges together a few times to ensure that the spices and salt have coated the wedges evenly.
Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and serve.
(Tip: On a chapati place the potato wedges and a few strands of cabbage or carrot. Sprinkle some cheese on top. Pour a teaspoon or two of tomato ketchup on this and roll the chapati. Potato roll is ready! My Saee loved it and the whole chapati was gone before I could blink!)
