Right in time for Friday! Lots of baked tato options! To serve as a side with your veggie burgers or eat the whole plate as is. Its potatoes.. they are baked, they are good for you;) well atleast gooder than fried ones.
Chewie's birthday is coming up! He is our adopted baby, who went from shelter to rescue to adoptive home, then back to rescue then came to our home and marked the entire place (dog owners will know what I mean;)..What do you think I should do to celebrate.. a birthday cause or sell some cafepress tees with Chewie on them :) . He plays with only some dogs, is civil to most. On the other hand, he loves all humans, loves to meet everyone and loves to get petted. the only humans he will growl at are a few really huge ones with hoodies or gadgets(I have no clue why).
These fries are inspired by Cadry's French Fries are her secret. It feels like a potato kind of week right. Fries after the Samosa French Toasts. You can find more Savory Snack options here.
The pictured fries are Cilantro, garlic, black salt, black pepper, chili powder.
Serves 1 :)
1 large Russet
2 teaspoons organic canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
a generous pinch teaspoon chili powder
a generous pinch
2 Tablespoons cilantro finely chopped
Scrub the potato and cut into not more than and 1/4 inch thick wedges/fries.
Add to a big bowl, add oil and spices and toss well.
Spread out the wedges on a parchment lined baking sheet in single layer.
Bake in preheated 420 degrees F for 15 minutes.
Turn the tray and bake for another 5-10 minutes until golden or crisp to your preference.
Its potato wedges! You can do any number of variations..
My other Variations :
1. Garam masala or Chaat masala fries.. Seriously, you cant beat some chili powder and garam masala on crisp potatoes.
2. Thyme and parsley. Some fresh thyme and parley from out garden, liberally added to the potatoes before baking and then also used to garnish when baked. perfection!
4. Green chili, asafoetida, turmeric and curry leaves. Its Tadka fries! Make the tempering with a Tablespoon of oil, 1-2 green chilies finely chopped. a generous ping of asafoetida(hing), turmeric and roughly chopped curry leaves. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the chili is crisp. Add to freshly baked wedges. Serve hot!
These spicy disappearing wedges are being shared at Ricki's wellness weekend, Ella's potluck, Amees Fit and fab Friday.
