Honey Glaze Potatoes !!

Since i try to keep a healthy diet,i deprive myself of the fried goodness on daily basis.However,once in while I do loose my cool & get swayed off by the temptatious oily goodness.I indulge and when i do, i make sure that the calories are worthy of my indulgence. 
Honey glazed potatoes is one yummy food which i often indulge in ..its a perfect mix of crispy thick fries covered with sweet tangy chili sauce and those sesame seeds..yumm!!...just add to the flavors.There is something completely addictive and magical about these potatoes.
Ever since i first tasted them I consistently craved for more, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and learn how to make my own.I tried various recipes.I had a rocky road of tons of trial & errors before i finally reached this one.

Ingredients
  • 3 medium potatoes - peeled and quartered
  •  water - to cover potatoes
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1thsp ketchup
  • 2 thsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 cup flour
Method
  1. cut the potatoes longitudinally as in  french fries.Cover it with water and add salt to it.Now microwave it on medium heat for 5-6 minutes or till its half done.take care it should not be very soft and tender.
  2. Drain the fries once done.Leave them aside for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Roll the fries in the flour & sieve the excess flour .
  4. Heat oil in a wok on medium heat or you can even do this in a fryer.Fry potatoes till golden brown.
  5. Once the fries are done drain them on a paper towel.Meanwhile,in another wok add 1 thsp of sesame seeds and saute until toasted.Make a mixture of honey ,ketchup & chili sauce.
  6. Add oil ,wait till it is slightly heated,add the sauce mixture.Tip in the fries.Mix well till all of the fries are coated with the sauces. Dish out.
  7. Garnish with the remaining roasted sesame seeds.
  • You can also add spring onion to the glaze & also use it to garnish.Frozen fries can also be used.
