Schezwan Potato Wedges !

Potato wedges is a varitation of french fries and  goes well with many different meals and generally served as sides or sometimes as a starter in parties. I usually potato wedges with just salt and pepper and some herbs. Then one day for a twist i added my schezwan sauce and marinated the potatoes and baked them as usual. They were bursting with flavours from the garlic and chilli and melting in mouth. Just have with a cup of hot tea on a cold evening and it is heavenly. A far far better alternative to the fried potato.


  • 2 Big Potatoes (cut into wedges)(preferably jacket potatoes)
  • salt as needed
  • 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried herbs
  • 1 - 2 tbsp Schezwan sauce (as per the spice level needed)
  • 1 tbsp oil


  • Wash well and Cut the potatoes into wedges.
  • Parboil them in hot water for 4 - 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl, add in the Schezwan sauce, salt, pepper and the dried herbs.
  • I have already posted the recipe for Schezwan sauce and you can find it HERE

  • Add the potatoes and mix well so that it is coated well with the Schezwan sauce. Let it marinate for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • On a roastind tray, place an aluminium foil and grease with oil.
  • Place the marinated potatoes without any overlapping. Sprinkle some oil on the potatoes.
  • Bake them in a preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes at 190 - 200deg C. In the middle, (may be after 15 mins) flip the potatoes so that it evenly cooked and the outer layer is crisp.
  • The temperature and time depends on the oven. So keep an eye always.

Serve it with the same sauce / tomato sauce / mayo / sour cream.

Try this simple recipe and enjoy with a cup of tea to beat the cold. 

With Love,
