Use fresh and natural honey
Whenever you make honey chilli potato at home, always make sure you use fresh and natural honey. Using raw honey of premium quality will give your dish a superior taste, texture, and finishing.
Keep loads of sauces for coating
Besides honey, you need to spice up this dish with piquant sauces as well. You can use soy sauce, mustard or any other chilli sauce that you like. You can also drizzle some tomato sauce to bring out tangy flavours if you want.
Fry in oil on low-medium flame
Always fry the potato wedges or fingers on a low medium flame in a pan. Saute it slowly and keep stirring until all the sauces coat well. If you make them on a high flame, there are chances you might burn or over fry them, which won’t lead to crispness.
Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top
Once your dish is ready, sprinkle a handful of roasted sesame seeds over the top before taking it out of the pan. Combine it with the other ingredients and leave it in the pan for a few minutes. Have you ever noticed that every restaurant-style chilli honey potato is coated with sesame seeds? Please do the same while making it at home, as sesame adds a zing of unbeatable taste and flavours.
