Arusuvai Friedship Chain – Oven Baked Potato fingers with Amchur powder

Atlast the most awaited Arusuvai Friendship chain parcel arrived last week.

Soon after me coming back from my native place I decided to try it out. Before that I confirmed that ingredient that been shipped to me by lovely Kamini is the “Amchur powder” (I used amma’s toungues to find it out).

The amchur powder is a new ingredient for my kitchen as I have never used it before. Somehow thought a lot and finally decided to try this. I was planning to try roasting veggies in my OTG and this is a chance 😉



1 Medium sized potato peeled and cut into fingers

a pinch or more salt (as per taste)

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon achur powder

1 teaspoon kasuri methi

1 teaspoon peanut oil

How to make it ?

Take all the ingredients in a bowl except the oil and toss till the spices coat the potato wedges evenly. Then add the oil and toss some more times. Spread the potato fingers in a greased baking tray and bake it in the oven (I used the “Bake” mode in my OTG) for 10 minutes. Take the tray out and toss the slices again. Use a spatula to turn them over if it gets sticked to the tray. Now push the tray again in the oven and broil it for 5 more minutes. Take them out and serve them warm with a cup of tea.

Yesterday suddenly the weather went gloomy and this dish was a nice compliment for that. Now I pass on my arusuvai friendship secret ingredient to Jayshree of luvgoodfood. Hello Jayshree! Have fun! Expecting your post very eagerly. And Thanks a bunch to Latha of theyumblog for starting this wonderful event and dear Sri of cooking4allseasons.blogspot.com for coordinating this event wonderfully.

I also send this to the Potato Feast conducted by Dhivya of CulinaryBazaar.
