Like most kids, Devansh loves French fries, which he gets to eat sometimes when we eat out. At home, I prefer to make potato wedges for him cooked in less oil instead of deep-fried fries. Couple of months back, I tried adding honey to it, and Devansh and I loved the honey-glazed potato wedges. I add a hint of chili flakes in the honey for Devansh’s wedges. For the rest of us, I add chili flakes generously. Combination of honey and chili flakes tastes too good.
My family and I love these less oily, honey glazed potato wedges as an evening snack. I plan to give these to Devansh in his tiffin for the small tiffin break once his school starts. Hope you’ll find this recipe useful. If you do, don’t forget to drop me a line in the comments section. I would love to hear from you.

Recipe of potato wedges cooked in little oil, and coated with honey and chili flakes. Something kids and grownups alike will enjoy as a snack.
- 4 medium/large potatoes
- 2-3 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp chili flakes
- Half tsp black pepper powder
- Salt to taste
- 1-2 tbsp oil
- Cook potatoes in a pressure cooker. (Don't overcook them, they should still be firm after cooking. I cook them till 4 whistles.)
- After the cooked potatoes cool down, refrigerate them for an hour at least.
- Peel potatoes and cut them in wedges.
- Heat a pan, add oil, and then add potato wedges. (Depending on the pan size, you will need to cook the potato wedges in 2-3 batches. Add the other ingredients given above proportionately.)
- Cook till the wedges turn golden brown. (Flip them over intermittently till they turn crisp on both large sides.)
- Transfer the wedges onto a plate.
- Add honey in the same pan, and then add black pepper powder, salt, and chili flakes.
- Add in the potato wedges, and mix in without crumbling the wedges. Make sure all the wedges get coated with honey from all sides.
- Serve hot.
- You can omit chili flakes if you are making wedges for toddlers.You can add a pinch of red chili powder instead. Also, you may want to use less pepper powder.
- Kids like sweet potato wedges. But if you want to make these wedges for grownups who don't like them too sweet, you can just add a hint of honey. To do this, use less honey and add a tsp of water along with it.
