Servings 4 servings


  • 1 Induction Cooktop
  • 1 Kadhai


  • 4 Potatoes medium
  • 2 tbsp Rice flour
  • 1 tbsp Corn starch
  • ½ tbsp Besan or Gram flour
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Red Chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano powder
  • 1 tsp Peri Peri powder optional


Cut the potatoes

  • First, wash the potatoes really well and peel them.
  • Next, cut them into wedges and put them into a bowl of water.
  • Wash off the extra starch and then transfer it into a boiling pot.

Boil the potatoes

  • Fill the pot with a generous amount of water and add salt.
  • Let the potato wedges boil until they are cooked to perfection.

Dry the potatoes

  • Check if the wedges are done and transfer them into an ice bath.
  • Keep them aside for around 4-8 minutes in the ice bath.
  • After that, take them out from the ice bath and spread them on a kitchen tissue-covered plate.
  • Pat them dry. Make sure that there is no moisture left on the surface of the wedges.
  • Next, transfer them into a mixing bowl.

Coat the potato wedges

  • To this add the rice flour, corn starch, besan/gram flour, and the red chili powder. (we won’t add any salt as the potatoes were boiled in salt water).
  • Combine them gently.
  • Coat all the wedges with the dry ingredients. Be patient or else the wedges will break.
  • Pop these in the freezer for around 30 minutes or if you want you can keep it a bit longer.

Fry the potato wedges

  • Now, take a deep-frying pan or a kadhai and add a generous amount of vegetable oil.
  • Let the oil heat until it smokes a little. Keep the flame on medium.
  • Gently drop the wedges in the oil and fry them until golden brown from all the sides.
  • Fry in batches or else they might stick together.
  • After all the wedges are done, increase the flame to high.
  • Fry all of them again for a few seconds. This will make them crispier.


  • Transfer them to a kitchen tissue-covered plate to get rid of the excess oil.
  • Garnish the fries with some dried oregano powder, peri peri masala, and black pepper powder.
  • Toss them lightly to coat them in the spic mix.
