in this recipe post i have showed two ways of preparing the potato wedges i.e deep frying and baked in oven. baking in oven is more a healthier option but deep fried are more tastier and crisp. i would recommend to use the baking option only if you have any health concerns, otherwise deep frying is the way to go for wedges. personally i do not like wedges or to be precisely any potato based snack upsets my stomach. but this snack is my brother’s favourite snack and i have to prepare it whenever he visits me.

deep fried & baked potato wedgeswhile it does not have any cumbersome process, yet i would like to share few tips and recommendations for a perfect & crispy potato wedges. firstly, i heavily recommend to use pink potatoes or waxy potatoes for any deep fried or roasted recipes. it contains less starch which helps to hold its shape even after deep frying or baking. secondly, cut the potatoes in even symmetric shape so that they cooked evenly while deep frying. lastly, you can deep freeze the potatoes after partially boiling it. you can deep fry them whenever you require and it should last minimum of 3-4 months.

  1. when we use the frozen wedges next time, should we directly add in the oven or thaw it first? And if thawing, then won’t the condensation ruin the spices?
