Baked Spicy Potato Fries 3 ways! : Spicy Masala, Chipotle Chili and Harissa Fries

IMG_5184Would you like some fries to go with your order sir? Sure, absolutely!  OK which one would you like – ‘Spicy Indian ‘, ‘Chipotle Chilli’, ‘Harissa’, or just plain? oh…how about all of them in a big platter! And I will skip the main course! Ha Ha.

I don’t know about you guys but that’s what I would do if presented with such options.  Oh wait did I mention that these ‘Fries’ are not actually ‘fried’ but they are ‘baked’!  Yes baked to perfect crispiness which sometimes even frying cannot deliver.! Now that’s just fantastic isn’t it? You still do need to watch the calories however baked ‘fries’ will always be a healthier option as compared to fried.  Wait now do we still call these ‘fries’ ? That does not sound right? What should we call them – Bries, maybe? LOL! Oh I don’t care what we call them …they are just absolutely wonderful and hard to stop eating! 🙂

I am also bringing this last minute entry to Fiesta Friday this week after all this is a perfect party pleaser 🙂

  • 2 medium size potatoes (I used red) cut into thin 1/4 inch thick strips

For the spicy Indian (masala) marinade:

  • 1/2 tsp red chilli
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp kasoori methi
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the Chipotle Chilli marinade:

  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chilli paste (in adobo sauce)
  • 1/4 tsp dry chipotle seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the Harissa marinade:


Preheat oven to 450 Deg F.

Take a large mixing bowl and add all the marinade ingredients (following any of the 3 marinade recipes above) and mix well using a whisk.

Add the sliced potatoes in the marinade and mix well using your hands.

Take a large baking tray and place Al foil and grease lightly with cooking spray/oil using a brush.

Spread the potatoes on the foil and bake at 450 F for 20 minutes or until crispy! (Turn after about 15 minutes if you want crispy on both sides)
