Left over recipe-Potato Finger chips varavu

 

















Many a times when we took a take away from KFC or Mcdonalds, a huge packet of finger chips came along with it, which both of us could never finish...Keep it for the next day it becomes as supple as your finger!!....More often than not, for my Indian taste buds which is very much used to very hot n spicy food, these chips were a little too bland as well...So this was something very easy that I tried, to metamorphose it to suit my palate.


Ingredients

Finger chips-200g
Red chilli powder-3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Cumin seed-1/2 tsp
Mustard seed-1/2 tsp
Poppy seeds(khus khus)-1/2 tsp(optional)
White sesame seeds-1/2tsp(optional)
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Oil-1tbsp
Salt-as required

Method

Heat oil in a wok. Add mustard, cumin seed,poppy seeds,sesame seeds,& curry leaves, in the same order. Once the seeds have spluttered,add red chilli powder, turmeric and salt. Mix it well and now add the finger chips to it and mix everything well and cook it for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring continuously. Spicy Finger Chips Varavu ready to go with chappathi or as a side dish with rice n dal. Posted by Picasa
