Potato wedges are a variation of french fries. As their name suggests, they are wedges of potatoes, often large and unpeeled, that are sprinkled with salt and herbs and either baked or fried and sold at diners and fast food restaurants. I have tried the variation by adding Goan Recheado masala. Recheado or Rechad masala is a famous Goan(Indian) red masala used specially for stuffing mackerel fish what we call Bangdo in Goa. You can use any kind of masala or herbs for applying to the wedges. So let’s start with homemade baked potato wedges.
- 1 Big Potato
- 2 Tablespoons of Recheado masala
- Salt to taste
Scrub potato and rinse under cold water. Don’t peel it . The skin should be on for wedges.
Cut potatoes into wedges. First cut it vertically into halves and then again cut each half vertically so that you get 4 parts.
Now cut these 4 parts into halves and you get total 8 parts.
and slice each of these parts into 3rds so total you get 24 wedges out of one big potato.
Apply some salt and keep for about 5 minutes.
Apply Recheado masala to these wedges. Coat them well.
Arrange on a wired rack lined with silver foil and bake at 400 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven for 20 minutes. Check with toothpick.
Enjoy with Tomato ketchup.
