Baked Potato Wedges
With step by step recipe & images-Can be made on tawa too.
My son is finishing his first year at school and his institution is having a small party for kids. Parents were asked to send some simple party snacks and my friend Gouthami suggested this Baked Potato Wedges recipe from her blog last evening.
She also suggested me to make the preparation works at night so that I can just bake /toast on a tawa today morning. I gave small tweaks to her recipe and made everything ready last night.I was so scared because I had failed twice before in baking gobi and potatoes but today baked potato wedges turned out to be a super hit.
I am saving this recipe for all my further attempts.The colour, texture , taste ,flavour of baked potato wedges was so perfect and super yummy. And an additional good thing about this recipe is you make it by just shallow frying in a tawa too. Come let’s see the recipe while I keep waiting for my son to get back with his feedback.

To make the same in tawa:

Flip it and cook for ten more minutes.
Wedges will ready on tawa.
Greasing aluminium foil with oil avoids sticking to the sheet and helps in flipping it easily.
I marinated it the whole night and baked today morning.You can prefer to make this way too.
If you marinate and freeze, ensure that the potatoes reach room temperature before baking.
The temperature settings might vary from oven to oven. Mine is Morphy Richards OTG and this worked fine.
Tweak the combination of spice powder as per your choice.
This can be given to babies above six months skipping the salt.
