BM #85 Week 2 Day 1 -

This week, I shall post some interesting dishes which are more in the lines of fusion across cuisines. These Honey Chili Potatoes are Chinese American, if I can say. The classic American French Fries are tossed in a Chinese sauce. To make it a tad guilt free, I Air Fried the French Fries.

Feel free to play with the different sauces, spice levels to suit your palate.

Ingredients - 

Potatoes, peeled, sliced into fingers 4 cups (4 Big potatoes)
Salt, Garlic Powder and Red Chili Powder as needed
Olive Oil spray as needed (I used upto 2 tsp)
Honey Chili Sauce -
Cooking Oil 2 tsp
Garlic and Ginger grated 1 tsp
Spring Onion greens, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Chili Garlic Sauce 1 Tbsp
Tomato Ketchup 2 tsp
Sriracha 1 Tbsp (optional if spicier version is preferred)
Soy Sauce 2 tsp
Vinegar 1 tsp
Honey 1 Tbsp (more if needed)
Garnish - 
Sesame Seeds, roasted 1 tsp
Spring Onion greens, finely chopped 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak the sliced potatoes in salted water for a few minutes. [Soaking is optional but recommended].

Drain and dry them well. Spray oil and sprinkle, salt, red chili powder and garlic powder as needed.

Preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes at 400°F.

Remove the air fryer basket and arrange the spiced potato fingers so they are uniformly distributed in the basket.

Air fry them for about 20 minutes tossing them after every 5-
7 minutes until they are uniformly brown and crispy.

While the potatoes are air frying, prepare the sauce.

To prepare the sauce, heat a pan on medium and add oil. Add in the grated ginger and garlic.

Saute them for a few seconds. Add in the spring onions. Saute for a few seconds. Increase the flame to high before adding the sauces.

Add in the chili garlic sauce, Sriracha (if using), tomato ketchup, soy sauce and vinegar. Mix well and let the sauces cook for a minute.

Remove from heat and add the honey. Mix well and allow it to cool.

After the sauce is sufficiently cool, toss in the air fried potatoes so that the potatoes are all well coated with the sauce. 

Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and spring onions. Serve immediately.
