Honey Chilli Crispy Smashed Potatoes

 Honey Chilli Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Looking for a recipe that's savory, yet super easy to make to enjoy in this rain? I have got your back! It's been raining 3 days back to back and ordering food is my best bet xD But outside food does get boring and isn't very healthy, so I thought of something that required less dishes to wash and is quick to make and the honey Chilli Smashed Crispy potatoes were born! I have used medium-small potatoes here. I would suggest to get hold of the really tiny ones if possible, gives better texture when bakes. The potatoes are boiled and then smashed which is then baked to crispy perfection. The honey Chilli sauce is like liquid gold. I like to drop a dollop of the sauce over the crispy Smashed potatoes, so that the potatoes stay crispy. These are best enjoyed hot. 

From now on, I plan to write a lot about a particular recipe, if there is a back story etc, otherwie, I plan to keep my blog recipes simple and easy to navigate through. Hope this will help the blog grow in a better way :)
