Recently, I came across too many potato wedges posts, on Facebook and magazines and practically everywhere :). Some were frying these , some were grilling them and some were baking them! I think it is a perfect party food to take to Fiesta Friday, co-hosted by 2 of my favorite blogger buddies, Burgerbird, Sue and BBB, Prudy. Hope you girls like it and get a nice crunch out of these.
My kids love grilled potato salad. My oldest loves oven grilled red potato salad with Italian seasonings. I have adapted my recipe from Salma’s post. She is a dear blogger friend who blogs from blogspot. She is an excellent blogger and a fantastic photographer. I am a big fan of her. She doesn’t even know that I am shouting out for her :).
Kitchen Equipments Required : oven, pressure cooker or big pan, foil, baking tray, chopping board, knife, bowl.
Russet Potatoes : 2 large or 4 small. Any other kind is okay too.
Oil : 3-4 tbsp
Cornflour : 1 tbsp
Rosemary : 1/2 tsp
Thyme : 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder : 1/4 tsp
Fancy paprika or degi mirch : 1/4 tsp
Garlic powder : 1/2 tsp, optional
Salt : to taste
- Parboil the potatoes. Don’t make them mushy. If you are pressure cooking, then 1 whistle is enough. Take them out and cool them.
Preheat the oven at 425*F. Line the baking tray with foil.
Take a bowl. Add all the ingredients in the bowl, besides the par boiled potatoes. Mix all the ingredients well. Set aside.
Peel the potatoes. Chop them in thick wedges, not more than 1/2 an inch in thickness.
Toss the chopped potato wedges in the bowl with mixed spices.
Spread the wedges on the baking sheet in single layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes till the wedges are crisp and golden. Flip them in between at about 12-15 minutes. Rotate the tray for even baking.
Enjoy them warm!

Would have made a vegetarian version of my corn chowder had I known about your soup event, Sonal. But there’s still time, looks like. Will need to get busy! Potatoes look great. My #1 fave food as you may have known is fried potatoes. This is a healthy alternative, yay! 🙂

Sonal, the browning on those wedges looks AMAZING! I can imagine the crunch while biting into them! Yumm…
I love potato wedges, Sonal, and I love that you went with the baked version. These look perfectly crisped!
Thanks Nancy. Aanya enjoyed it thoroughly for whom I made these :).
Hi Sonal, I love potatoes and have been avoiding them because cutting down on calories. But, I must tell you, at Fiesta, I am going to have some of these no matter what! 😛 Fae.
Love ya Fae :). Where have you been?
Sonal, you really managed to get these potatoes crisped on the surface . . . is it the cornflour I wonder? They look sooooooo tasty, especially for as healthy as the recipe is. I must try! Thank you for bringing such a simple and healthy take on fries to this party!
Yes that’s Cornflour :)).
I think these pics definitely count as food porn, your post is making me hungry even though I have eaten! X
I’m marking this recipe right now. They sound delicious, I love thyme too. I definitely crave potatoes and other starches since my celiac diagnosis too. Happy fiesta! 🙂
Happy fiesta to you as well Kaila :). Thanks for the sweet comment!
These look fantastic! I’ll definitely be giving them a try the next time I make wedges! 🙂
Very scrumptious soul food! 😀
Those look so perfect Sonal! Btw, I told Liz (@My Favourite Pastime) to post her soup to your event…
I love potatoes and this looks great!
Don’t think I have ever seems such perfect looking potato wedges. Perfectly browned Sonal!
Potato wedges are my go to comfort food. I normally buy them to be just lazy and enjoy them. This looks very doable. Will try it soon!

gorgeous! thanks for sharing!
Thank you Simi!
pressure cooking them? never thought of that.. i never know though.. what counts as one whistle? up to temp.. it locks itself.. then??? great looking wedges…
Mr. Fitz, thanks for the compliment.
I cook a lot in pressure cooker. It mainly works on cooking by steaming and accelerating the process. It locks and a weight sits on the top to gauge the pressure build up and release. It normally takes 7-10 minutes before the whistle makes a noise. That is good for par boiling the potatoes. For mushed up texture, cook further in pressure cooker on simmer for further 7-8 minutes. That time varies for different things though!
Yeah.. I have one yet modern with no weight .. Have been looking for some kinda guide!
Found something for you! I hope that is helpful.
VERY COOL.. although a little squiffy right now and making supper… its hard to read! thanks though!
That sounds delish! Mmmm!
Thanks my dear! Visited your blog and you have created a beautiful dainty space there :).
Thanks for stopping by and yes dainty is such a great word to describe it. Hope you enjoy the posts! 🙂
Fabulous!! I have some leftover potatoes from last night that I can try this with ☺️ excellent!! Can I use anything else instead of cornflour?
So yummy, Sonal 🙂 I love Potatoes, they are so versatile and always tasty !
The pic itself is yummmm ……
I love me some potatoes! And these look absolutely delicious Sonal! I miss eating potatoes!
It is a great idea to cook in a pressure cooker prior to baking. Would save so much time! I will try this.
