Notes & Tips

1. This recipe was provided by my younger sister Uttara. She is a busy working mom, who loves to make such quick snacks for her children.

2. Browning of the fries may be done as desired.

3. There can be a variation in this to get crispy potato wedges. This can be done by leaving the potato skin on, cutting wedge-like pieces and following the same procedure afetr that.
