My love for Indo Chinese Cuisine is increasing with growing years. To my surprise I do not like the food they serve at restaurants in the garb of Chinese food. The same gravy is poured over all dishes and they all taste alike. But making them at home has introduced me to different flavours and styles. I love to make Chili Mushrooms, Veg Manchurian, Gobhi Manchurian, Veg Momos with Szhezuan Sauce, Chili Baby Corn and now the latest and crispiest Chili Potatoes with Honey Glaze.

I always remember eating these potatoes but they were always frail and soggy simply smeared in the sauce. But when I tried making them at home they came out crispy with a crunch. Ohh Lord it was shere food porn. There are a few things which you must follow to make them crisp. It may look like a long procedure but the results will speak for themselves. I bet you will never go back making them the way you usually do.

Directions:

1. Wash and Peel Potatoes.
