Baked Spicy Potato Fries
Adapted from http://ahaar.blogspot.com/2011/05/baked-sweet-potato-fries.html. I followed Mandira's recipe exactly and the potatoes turned out perfect.
These fries are not crispy and crunchy like my earlier recipe of Crispy Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries. These are the melt in the mouth types. Mixing the sweet potato with the ordinary potato and adding some spices is a nice variation to plain sweet potato fries.
Sweet Potato - 1, big
Red Potato / Yukon Gold Potato - 1, big
Olive Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp
Scrub the potatoes well and cut into medium sized cubes.
Mix all the spices, salt, oil together and rub the potato cubes well with this mixture.
Put the cubes on an foil wrapped baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, then toss once and bake for another 10 minutes or so till the potatoes get soft and slightly caramelised at the edges.
