Chilli-Garlic Potatoes

 This is another easy to make recipe with spring onions and crispy fried potatoes cooked in a  garlic and red chilli sauce.
Chilli-garlic potatoes is one of my favorite and this recipe tastes great with noodles.You can cut the potatoes into cubes or simple wedges.If you do not have fresh red chillies then use dried red chillies soaked in warm water for at least 30-35 minutes.

Ingredients:
Potatoes-4 Medium
Garlic-8-10 cloves
Red chilli-8
Tomato ketchup-1/2 cup
Salt-to taste
Water -1/4 cup
Spring onions-1/4 cups,finely chopped
Oil-2 cups for frying the potatoes and 2 teaspoons for cooking
Cornflour-3 teaspoons

Method:
-Grind the red chillies and garlic to make a fine paste.
-Mix this paste with 1/2 cup of tomato ketchup by adding 1/4 cup of water to it.Mix well and keep aside.
-Peel and cut the potatoes into the desired size and dust cornflour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to it and mix well with hands.
-Heat a pan and add 2 cups of oil and fry the potatoes in batches.Take out and drain excess oil on a kitchen towel.
-Now heat another pan and add 2 teaspoons of oil and add the paste and cook it on medium flame till the sauce paste becomes a little dry.
-Immediately add the fried potatoes and spring onions and stir well for another 2-3 minutes.
-Chilli-Garlic Potatoes is ready to serve.
