Potatoes are coated in a spicy mixture of corn flour and Cajun seasoning then deep fried until crispy. Very simple and really crunchy. I like mine extra spicy so I soak my cut potatoes in hot sauce for a few seconds before shaking them in the dry batter.

I was specifically looking for a spicy recipe and I came across this one and had to try it. I followed the recipe exactly but also used a couple of tablespoons of GROUND FRESH CHILI PASTE (in a jar in the asian food section)to coat the potatoes before putting them in the corn flour mixture. Then I deep fried them in PEANUT OIL until browned. My only problem was I couldn't get them really crispy. They were brown but not crispy. Not sure what the problem was. Anyway I still loved this recipe and can't wait to make it for the family too. Read More

These had great flavor but a fire on the stovetop forced me to bake them in the oven after I already had them ready to fry. They were still okay but I'll have to try them the right way sometime. Read More
