Hi everyone welcome back to my blog. Today’s recipe features a very versatile vegetable….POTATOES!! You can have it fried, mashed, baked, boiled, wedges or chips, needless to say your options are endless. These chips are filling, full of flavour and go really well as a side to most dishes.
Seasoned Potato Chips recipe (makes 5 potions)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 onion powder
1 tsp dried oregano
Pinch of chilli
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
5 large potatoes – peeled and cut into chip shapes
Oil – to drizzle potatoes
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and place a large tray into the oven.
Mix all of the dry seasonings together in a small bowl and set aside.
Peel, chop and wash the potatoes. Cut them into chip shapes and place into the oven tray, drizzling with oil but not too much.
Next sprinkle oven the combined seasonings, mix everything together and cook in the oven for about an hour until cooked through.
Originally, when I was planning this recipe they were supposed to be pakoras but I didn’t get the consistency right and they looked more like fritters but still tasted really good. I’ve left the recipe for the rice down below.
Potato and Kale Fritters (serves 2/3)
125g gram flour or wholemeal
25g self-raising flour
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
150g potatoes – peeled and cut into cubes
1 spring onion – finely sliced
Handful of kale
Oil – for frying
Prepare the potatoes and in the meantime, place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl with the spring onion and kale, mixing well.
Slowly pour water into the flour mix until it is a runny dropping consistency, then add the lemon juice and set aside for 15 minutes.
Heat some oil in a deep pan and once the potatoes are cooked add to the mixture and combine everything together.
Once the oil is hot enough, keep it on a medium heat gently adding about 5/6 tablespoons of the mixture (depending of the size of your pan) and fry on both sides for about 5 minutes until golden and crispy.
You can serve them immediately or keep in the oven on a very low heat to stay warm.
