  • Potatoes 2 chopped into thin fingers
  • Onion 1 medium sliced thinly
  • Garlic cloves 3 minced
  • Ginger 1 tablespoon grated
  • Dark soy sauce 1.5 tbsp
  • Tomato ketchup 1.5 tbsp
  • Vinegar 1 tsp
  • Green chili sauce 2 tbsp
  • Honey 1 tbsp
  • Sesame seeds 1 tbsp
  • Salt a pinch
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Oil 1 tbsp
  • Coriander leaves for garnish


  • Chop the potatoes into thin fingers like you would for french fries.
  • Dunk these fingers into ice cold water for about 15 mins. This is to remove the starch from the potatoes and keep them crunchy when fried. Please don't skip this step. If you do, you ll land up with sticky potato.
  • After 15 mins, drain the potatoes and let them dry for two mins on kitchen towels.
  • In the meanwhile, heat up a pan with oil for deep frying.
  • Once the oil is hot, deep fry the potatoes till golden and drain on a paper towel. I did this in two batches.
  • After you have fried up the potatoes, heat another pan with 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the garlic, ginger and onions and fry till onions turn a very light golden.
  • To this add all the sauces, vinegar, salt and honey and mix well.
  • Keep a tab on the salt as the sauces already have salt in them.
  • Now add the fried potatoes and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with fried rice or pulao.


1. Do not skip dunking the potatoes in ice cold water. If you do, the potatoes will stick to each other after frying.
