potato is one such tuber, that tastes great whether roasted, fried, simmered or baked. this recipe of potato wedges is one of those recipes i make at times for a quick snack. i add rice flour in the seasoning and it gives a crisp texture to the potatoes. if you do not have rice flour, then you can skip it.

dried herbs are also added. usually i add a mix of oregano, basil and thyme. sometimes if i have rosemary or sage, i add that too. you can add your favorite herbs to the seasoning.

if you chose to bake the potato wedges, then add olive oil in the marination. instead of olive oil, you can also use any neutral flavored oil or melted butter.

baked potato wedges recipe

if you choose to fry the potato wedges, then you can either deep fry or shallow fry them. deep frying potatoes makes them nicely crisp. if deep frying, then skip olive oil added in the marination for baking.

  1. Hi dassana,
    can i put the wedges directly on the aluminium baking sheet? i suppose both aluminium sheet and foil should give same results?

  2. hi,
    the wedges just stuck to the foil paper and i had to pry them off. 🙁
    could it be because i substituted rice flour with cornflour? i routinely substitute rice flour with cornflour and it has never been a problem.

    • you are right. its due to the corn flour. corn flour does become sticky if there is too much moisture or water in any marination or mixture. as an alternative you can use besan (gram flour) instead of rice flour.

  3. Hi Dassana

    I tried this today and it was amazing. I mixed Potato and Cauliflower. . Everyone loved. . Will make more. . So easy as well. . Thank you so much 🙂5 stars

  4. Dear dassana, kindly suggest me on how to use conventional microwave for the same recipe. Thank you.

    • gowri, preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius for 10 minutes in the convection mode. keep the pan in the oven and then bake for 15 to 20 minutes at the same temperature of 180 degrees celsius. in a convection microwave oven, baking is faster, so it will take less time to bake.
