For the second day, I am here with another dish made with potatoes. I am doing one vegetable three ways this week. After the tater tots, I didn’t want to deep fry one more dish. So baked the potatoes in oven and mixed it with the sauce. This is quite easy to make and tastes so delicious. I made an Indo-Chinese lunch today and this Honey Sesame Chilly Potatoes were part of it. There are so many variations of this dish available in many blogs, but I went for an easier version. If you want you can deep fry the potatoes and make this.
A delicious sauce is made with honey, red chilly sauce, soy sauce and tomato sauce and baked or deep fried potato fingers are tossed along with roasted sesame seeds. How good does it sound. I just loved the way it turned out. I didn’t add honey while the sauce was cooking, as I read somewhere that cooking honey may turn it toxic. So I added honey after adding the potatoes. Make sure that you have enough sauce to coat all the potatoes. The final dish is tangy, sweet, hot and yum.
