PREPARATION
Preparing the Potatoes
1.
Cut the potatoes in wedges. Keep the potatoes in cold water for 30 mins.
2.
Drain them and add cornflour, salt and pepper. Mix well.
3.
Heat oil for shallow frying the potatoes.
4.
Fry in a wok or kadai until the potatoes are crisp and browned. Drain on paper towels.
Preparing the Sauce
5.
Remove the extra oil from the wok, keep about 1 tbsp oil in the wok or kadai.
6.
Add onions, green chilies, ginger and garlic and stir fry on a high heat for a minute or two.
7.
Add the crushed schezwan pepper and black pepper.
8.
Stir fry for one or two minutes.
9.
Add the soy sauce, red chili sauce, salt and sugar.
10.
Stir and then add water or veg stock and let the sauce come to a simmer.
11.
Mix 1 tbsp corn starch with 1 or 2 tbsp water to a smooth paste.
12.
Add the corn starch paste and chopped celery.
13.
Simmer for a few minutes till the the sauce begins to thicken.
14.
Add the fried potato wedges. toss them well in the sauce.
15.
Garnish with spring onion greens or chopped celery and serve the schezwan chilli potatoes hot with veg fried rice, veg hakka noodles or with your choice of bread or with naan or rotis.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
1.
To cut down on cook time, I use two flat pans to cook the potatoes, which cuts the time in half.
2.
Don't take the "2 TBSP corn flour" too seriously. I usually put about one dozen potato wedges into a bowl, add 1 TBSP of corn flour, and toss until the wedges are evenly coated. This means I end up using more than 2 TBSP of corn flour.
3.
When I make my wedges, each wedge has a thinner edge and a thicker edge (meaning it looks triangular when you look at a wedge from the side). This is so the thinner edge gets brown and crispy during cooking and the thinner edge does not. The resulting texture/taste is great.
