The moment I mentioned the plan to my family, I could see an instant shine in their eyes. My daughters excitedly started searching for a perfect movie to watch with Honey Chilli Potatoes and my husband posted himself right behind my shoulder to have the privilege of first taste testing.
The wedges came out as delicious as everybody had imagined and were real quick n easy to do too. In fact I made some chicken tikka on the other stove at the same time while the wedges were boiling. And we had a funtastic movie night dinner ready in 30 minutes. The most difficult task was to keep the family away while I took the pictures to share with you!
-Always start cooking potatoes and other vegetables that come from under the ground in a pot of cold water. Adding them directly to hot water cooks them fast on outside while they remain hard inside.
-This wedges can be deep fried too, I parboiled them so that I could finish cooking them in a lot less oil.
-You can bake the wedges till crispy first, then toss in the sauce. To bake drizzle a little olive oil, sprinkle salt and bake in preheated 190 degrees c oven for 30-35 minutes.
Let the party begin guys!

This Is What You Do:
Add potatoes to a pot full of water. Boil till they are half done. Strain.
Mix honey, hot sauce, red chilli flakes, tomato sauce, vinegar, salt and corn flour in a bowl with 1/2 cup water. Set aside.
Heat oil in nonstick frying pan. Add potato wedges and fry till golden and crisp on outside. Add ginger-garlic paste, sauté for a minute.
