This a very easy and quick recipe and taste delicious. A must try for potato lovers like me. Potato has been my favourite vegetable since childhood. I still remember how I used to ask my mom to add potatoes in each and every curry, she used to cook :)
And that love for potatoes can still be seen. Even now,I never fail to try any potato recipe, that I come across in any recipe book. And trust me this recipe was finger lickin good(scroll down to see the verdict) : D This can be served as a side dish with fried rice or can be eaten on it own. And I am definitely going to make this again and again.

1 onion- sliced,
1/2 cup of chopped spring onions,
4 whole red chillies,
6 cloves of garlic-chopped,
3 tbsp of cornstarch,
1 tsp of red chilli paste,
1 tsp of soya sauce,
1/4 tsp of sugar,
1 tbsp of vinegar,
2 tbsp of vegetable oil +
Oil for deep frying and
salt to taste.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick wedges. Soak these wedges in cold water for half an hour. Par- boil the potato wedges in a saucepan , drain and cool them.
Heat oil in a kadai/ wok , dust the wedges with 2 tbsp of corn starch and deep fry until crisp and golden brown. Remove and drain excess oil on a kitchen towel.
Heat the 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, break the whole red chillies into two and add them to the pan. Stir fry briefly and add the chopped garlic , sliced onion and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. now add the red chilli (blended in a quarter cup of water), soya sauce, sugar and salt to taste. Add the fried potatoes and toss them in the pan . Now add the remaining 1 tbsp of cornstarch and mix well again, add the vinegar and stir fry briefly. Garnish with chopped spring onions and serve hot.
This dish can be made even with leftover french fries.
And instead of of deep frying the wedges, they can also be baked until they turn light brown and crispy.
