SESAME CHILLY POTATOES

Its actually been a while since i last posted a recipe.........I can not think of any intros......I have typed and deleted atleast five times............finally I give up.

made this dish for an indian chinese dinner that I made on friday.
As I was making this dish,I remembered the A.W.E.D with theme chinese, hosted by Culinary Bazaar. It fit perfectly. I am sending it in.



I made this using a stir fry sauce that I had bought from Trader Joe's (a speciality store). it did the trick. I was amazed how good it tasted. Served it along with vegetable manchurian, fried rice and hakka noodles.

here is the recipe



You will need
  • potatoes- 4
  • onions (sliced)- 1
  • bell peppers (sliced)- 1/2
  • garlic (finally chopped)- 1 tsp
  • sesame seeds- 1 tsp
  • whole red chilly- 2-3
  • stir fry sauce- 1 tbsp
  • chilly sauce- 1 tsp
  • soy sauce- 1/2 tsp
  • tomato sauce- 1 tsp
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • ajinomoto- a pinch (this is optional)
  • oil
You have to
  1. cut potatoes into long slices and fry them. drain excess oil.
  2. to make the potatoes crisper, after frying I baked them in the oven for 10- 15 mins.
  3. heat oil in a pan. add the sesame seeds, whole red chilly and garlic. saute.
  4. add onions and fry them till soft. add the bell peppers. cook.
  5. add soy sauce, chilly sauce and tomato sauce. along with salt, pepper, sugar and ajinomoto.
  6. add the potatoes. mix everything.
  7. add the stir fry sauce and cook.
  8. add very littler water, to get all the sauces together and coat the potatoes.
  9. dish out and garnish with spring onions.
enjoy.
