Ingredients for spicy potatoes

Ingredients for spicy potatoes:

  • Potatoes: You can use any type of potato you like. Just be sure to dry the slices thoroughly before deep frying them to avoid splattering oil.
  • Spring onions: Separate the spring onions into two parts: the white part and the green part. The white part of the spring onion should be used in step 2, while the green part should be reserved for step 5.
  • Oyster sauce: The oyster sauce helps to add a rich and savory seafood-like flavor to the dish. However, if you don’t have any oyster sauce on hand, don’t worry! You can simply omit it and add a little extra soy sauce to the dish to help balance out the flavors.
  • Fresh chili and chili flakes: if you can’t handle too much heat, you can easily adjust the level of spiciness to your liking. Simply omit the chili altogether, or reduce the amount you use, until you reach a level of spiciness that is comfortable for you. Just be aware that some types of fresh chili peppers, such as Thai bird’s eye chilies, can be extremely spicy.

Recipe Notes:

  • When deep frying potato slices, the oil should be hot enough to form the crisp outer shell quickly. Be sure not to overcrowd the pot with too many slices which will lower the overall oil temperature and cause the potatoes to become soggy or break apart.
  • When you reach step 4 of this recipe, it’s important to pay attention to the timing. The dry ingredients, such as cumin, pepper powder, and chili flakes, can easily become bitter if they are overcooked. To avoid this, be sure to add them in quickly and stir well to coat the potatoes. Then, cook for just a few more seconds until everything is heated through.
  • There is plenty of room for customization and experimentation in this recipe. While it’s important to get the saltiness right, most of the other ingredients can be adjusted to your liking.
  • If you are looking to add some extra flavor to this dish, try adding some bacon pieces in step two. Just be sure to cook the bacon until they are crispy.

FAQs:

Can I fry potato slices in the frying pan or air fryer?

Yes, you can fry potato slices in the frying pan or air fryer. They might take a bit longer than deep frying, but they can help to reduce the amount of oil you use while still achieving perfectly crispy potato slices. When you fry the potato in the frying pan, just be sure to use enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.

Can I make this dish without deep-frying potatoes?

Deep frying is an important step in this recipe. Deep frying the potato slices creates a protective shell around the outside of the potato and prevents them from breaking apart during the stir fry process. It also helps to cook the potatoes all the way through, which may not be possible if you try to cook them solely in the stir fry.

Can I make this recipe vegan?

Yes, you can make this recipe vegan. The only non-vegan ingredient is the oyster sauce, which can easily be replaced with a little extra soy sauce.
