While the following recipe has a tinge of sweetness, it does taste amazing even to someone who prefers spicy side dishes to rice or pretty much anything (that’s me, by the way).
Heavenly Sesame Potatoes in Sweet Tomato Sauce
2 large potatoes, cut into wedges (I used russet potatoes)
1 large onion, chopped fine
2 tomatoes, sliced into small pieces
1 small capsicum (or half of one), chopped fine
2 tsp soya sauce
1/2 tsp brown sugar or honey (white sugar is also fine)
1 tsp crushed garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic paste)
1 tsp red chilly powder
2 tbsp gingelly / sesame oil (must use this oil)
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves or spring onions, for garnish
How to make Honey Chilli Roasted Potatoes:
1. Shallow fry the potato wedges in oil until golden brown. Set aside to drain on a kitchen napkin.
2. In the remaining oil, add the onions and garlic and fry until golden brown. Then add the chilly powder and fry for a minute. Then add the tomatoes and saute until soft and mushy.
3. Turn heat to high and add the soya sauce and sugar. Fry on high for a minute and lower to medium heat. Add the capsicum and salt and mix well. Remove from fire after about 3-5 minutes.
4. Spoon this sauce over the potatoes and serve warm with garnish.
