To get the best crispy honey chilli potato, there are some important steps that need to be followed. Firstly, the potatoes need to be fried twice in batter for extra crunch. Once fried, the potatoes may become soggy and lack texture. First of all, coat the potato fingers with the dry mixture, deep fry them until almost cooked, then let them cool.

Later, give them a second coating of batter and fry them again until they achieve the desired crispness from outside and maintain perfect softness from inside. This method is similar to the one used to make French fries.

The final touch includes coating the potatoes in a delicious sesame honey chili sauce. This sweet and spicy mixture not only adds depth to the dish but also enhances its overall appeal. Enjoy the amazing combination of textures and flavors in every bite!
