Tips for crispy honey chilli potato
  • Use double frying method. First fry them after coating with cornflour on medium low heat and second one in high flame before stir frying with the sauce.
  • Rinse the potato fingers in water to remove sugar from outer surface and then pat them dry completely.
  • Fry them immediately after coating with corn flour. Otherwise moisture start to release on the suface and the fingers will stick to each other while frying.

The best part of this wonderful sauce is you don't need to add any corn flour slurry to thicken. Honey do the job for the sauce. To make the sauce more bright and glazing add some red chilly paste.
 I haven't use vinegar in this recipe because of tomato sauce which has the tangy flavour.
