SPICY HERBED POTATO WEDGES

It's raining." Black out" in my apartments for the past 4 days. Hakuna stima!(No power).  when it rains you madly crave for something  spicy and yummy, but to me (healthy) it has to be healthy as well. Like me obviously my family, too  craves for potatoes especially my elder son who is a fan of chips.


This potato wedges are a good healthy choice for you and your family as it is pan fried. Go for the pan fried wedges rather than the deep fired potato chips. Of course we are not holy in dieting. At times we do fail but we can try to stay healthy. This potato wedges tastes almost  like the deep fried chips. Try it and tell me.

It's raining




On James Gichuru road





Ingredients: (serves 4)

Potatoes- 5 (sliced into wedges)

Chopped Garlic - 1 tspn

Thyme- 1 tspn(any herb of your choice)

Paprika/ Chilly powder- 1 tspn

Corn flour- 1 tbspn

Oil- 2 tbspns

Salt to taste



Method:


Heat the pan and add the oil. I prefer a non- stick pan to prepare this wedges as this would consume very little oil and give you a healthy snack. You can also use olive oil for health benefits.






When the oil is hot add the  garlic followed by wedges to the pan and reduce the flame.





Add the corn flour, paprika, salt and thyme to the wedges and mix uniformly.

Close the pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes. Irish potatoes are the very good choice for this potatoes wedges.


 Cook until done and serve hot during this rainy season.
