When you feel like having a snack more exciting than subtly-flavoured French fries, then these Crusty Potato Fingers would be perfect for you. The potato fingers are deep-fried with a special batter, which is spiced up with green chillies, ginger and onions. Not only that, a brushing of crushed corn flakes before popping these batter-coated potatoes into the oil, is really the most exciting twist in this recipe as you are sure to agree when you relish the crunch in every bite! Serve immediately, with Schezuan sauce.
