Cooking good food doesn't need the most exotic ingredients or anything fancy and expensive. It's all about the choice and combination of right ingredients and a willingness to try new and creative ways of cooking the same old food to make it taste and look good. Here's how I cooked up some spicy fries that were fried in the least amount of oil and had a burst of flavors from my favorite ingredients.
Potatoes-4 medium, cut into desired shape and size, washed and patted dry
Oil-a little as desired
Red pepper powder-1 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Coconut powder-2 tbs, roasted
Fresh cilantro leaves-enough to garnish
1.Grind together the coconut powder, garlic pepper powder, salt and turmeric powder and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a pot and fry the potatoes until just about done.
3. Sprinkle the powdered mixture and give it a toss and reduce the flame and cook until the potatoes are cooked all the way through.
4. Turn off the stove and garnish with cilantro leaves.
You may grind the mixture to your desired texture-coarse or fine.
Use a non-stick pot and use the least amount of oil.
