Lockdown Cooking | Honey Chilli Potato

After numerous attempts, I finally managed to make honey chili potato at home 🙂 Do check out my recipe!

What did I use?

For the slurry

  • All-purpose flour or maida – 4 tablespoon
  • Cornflour – 2 tablespoon
  • Rice flour – 2 tablespoon
  • Salt – as required
  • Water – as required

For the sauce

  • Honey – 2 teaspoon
  • Oil – 2 tablespoon
  • White sesame seeds – 2 teaspoon
  • Long cut green chili – 3
  • Chopped Onion – 1
  • Finely sliced capsicum – 1
  • Sugar – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chopped garlic cloves – 5
  • Salt – as required
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Soya sauce – 1 teaspoon
  • Chilli sauce – 1 teaspoon
  • Tomato sauce – 1 teaspoon

For the potato base

  • Half boiled thinly sliced potatoes – 4
  • Cornflour – for coating
  • Oil – for frying

For the garnish

  • Roasted white sesame seeds

How did I make it?

Slurry

  • I prepared a thick slurry by mixing maida,corn flour, rice flour, salt and water. My slurry was thick enough for the potato to get dipped and not drip-off.

Potato Base

  • I cut half boiled potatoes into thin slices [ similar to french fries ] and coated them with dry cornflour.
  • After coating them with cornflour, I dipped them in the prepared slurry and deep-fried it on low flame till golden and crisp.

Sauce

  • I took a pan and added oil to it. After adding oil, I added salt, sesame seeds, garlic, sugar, green chili, capsicum, onions, and water.
  • I mixed them on a medium flame and allowed the mixture to come to a boil. Once the mixture starts to thicken, I added chili sauce, soya sauce, and tomato sauce. My sauce is ready!
  • Note: if the sauce doesn’t thicken, then adding a teaspoon of the prepared slurry helps. However, this is optional.
  • When my sauce is ready, I added the fried potato and honey and gave it a mix and allowed it to absorb for about 5 minutes on a low flame.
  • Finally, I sprinkled roasted sesame seeds and served.
  • Honey chili potato is ready! ❤️

Skincare | Remove tan from your body

TAN 😒 

I am sure, just like me, a lot of you must be facing issues with removing tan from your body. 

Lockdown has made me experiment so many things! After trying out almost all the possible cosmetics and home remedies to remove tan from my arms and legs, I realized that nothing is working for my body.

After numerous experiments and consultations, I decided to try my custom tan remedy, which suits my skin and also produces results. 

The first couple of times, I did not see any results. But, consistency is the key here and after several attempts, I am now able to see the results and that’s how I found my custom remedy for removing tan from the body.

NOTE: My skin is very sensitive and the remedy provided here is for sensitive skin type. You can try this for other skin types as well 🙂 Plus, you will have to apply this pack every alternate day for a minimum of three weeks for best results.

How did I prepare the pack?

  • All-purpose flour or maida – 1 tablespoon
  • Fuller’s earth or Multani mitti – 1 tablespoon
  • Rice flour – 1 tablespoon
  • Raw milk – for binding
  • Potato juice – for binding

How did I use this pack?

  • I mixed all the ingredients and stored it in the freezer for about 5 to 7 minutes. 
  • Once set, I directly applied on clean skin and allowed it to dry for about 20 minutes. 
  • Once dried, I washed it with cold water. 

If you wish to use this on your face, please use ONLY raw milk and fuller’s earth for the face, as the facial skin is extremely sensitive and is more prone to rashes.

After this, I ensured that I am not in contact with soap or facewash for a minimum of 6 hours. I would recommend trying this in the night before bed, as the resting time will allow the skin to breathe and absorb the pack in a better way.

I hope this helps! 🙂
