Potato Fry

Potato fry is a perfect side dish to accompany a variety of main recipes. Though it is a fried food, it uses very less oil, salt and chili powder. This recipe along with tomato sauce serves as a good snack. It can also be seasoned with pepper instead of chili powder to make it even spicier.

Red chili powder - 2 teaspoon

Salt - to taste

Oil - 4 teaspoons


1) Cut the potatoes to slight bigger pieces (in wedge shape).

2) Add red chili powder, salt, a teaspoon of oil and mix it well.
