The charming chef at CookingShooking has created 2 Youtube versions of this fantastically popular recipe. We are showcasing the new LOCKDOWN version he created recently.
This Honey Chilli Potato recipe is easy to make... and has the same magical taste as the original recipe but without using Chinese sauces. The chef calls this most recent version, without Chinese sauce, Lockdown – Crispy Honey Chilli Potatoes.
We suggest that you watch his entire video demo, which is only 6:47-minutes long, and follow along carefully. For crispy, crunchy potatoes, take note of his double fry trick. Then give this easy recipe a try. A list of ingredients follows the video, and you'll find a link to his original recipe down below.
4 potatoes, peeled (2 large and 2 medium)
suitable amount of water for rinsing potatoes
2 spoons rice powder
suitable amount of oil for frying potatoes
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
1.5 tbsp red chili flakes or red chili powder
2 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp oil
6 sliced green chilies
1 tbsp sesame seeds (til)
1 or 2 sliced onions
1 sliced tomato
1 tsp salt
3-4 tbsp water
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1 tbsp honey
4 potatoes, peeled, 2 are large and 2 are medium, soaked in water in a bowl.
Slice the potatoes into 1 CM thick pieces, then stack and cut into sticks.
Put the potato sticks into a bowl of water, mix them around to remove starch and discard the water.
Add 2 spoons of RICE POWDER to the potatoes to make them extra-crunchy (use corn flour or corn starch if you don’t like or can’t find rice powder).
Heat oil in a pot at Medium setting and add half the potatoes one by one. It will take 6-7 minutes minimum for the potatoes to get light golden colored. Chop your garlic, and slice red onion, green chilies and tomatoes while the potatoes cook. Remove the ready potatoes and add the second batch of potato sticks one by one for the same length of time.
Now for the chef's special crispy trick: turn the heat to HIGH and slide all the cooked potatoes back into the oil and fry for 1 minute until they are golden. Take them out carefully before they burn. They are very crispy/crunchy now and ready to be turned into Crispy Honey Chili Potatoes.
RED CHILI SAUCE:
In a small bowl mix:
3 TBSP tomato ketchup
1.5 TBSP crushed chili flakes or chili powder
2 TBSP chopped garlic cloves, fresh (or exchange for chopped cabbage if you don’t like garlic)
Mix these three ingredients together very well.
WHERE POTATOES AND SAUCE MEET AND MERGE:
2 TBSP vegetable oil in a wok or stainless-steel pan at high heat and add:
6 Green chilies that are split or shredded and fry them 10-15 seconds then add
1 TBSP sesame seeds (optional) and stir the red chili sauce, then add
and cook for 20 seconds so garlic cooks and sauce is rich-flavored
Add sliced red onions and tomatoes and salt, cook about 2 minutes until onions are soft
3-4 TBSP water should be stirred in as it begins sticking to the pan to loosen it up
Add Lemon juice (optional) and powdered Pepper and mix well.
Turn off the heat and add 1 TBSP HONEY and mix well.
Do not turn on the heat again or the potatoes will get soft.
Add the prepared potatoes into the sauce and mix well. No Chinese sauce, but an equally delicious taste!
Serve it up on plates and enjoy the unique flavors!
