Kapi cho potatoes are a yummy treat for potato lovers. A recipe of Indo-Chinese origin, this sweet-sour dish can be passed around as finger food, or served as a main dish while dinner. It is easy to make, and probably can be described as french fries tossed in Chinese sauces.


The potato pieces must be long strips and the sauce thick-made of soya and tomato sauces and plenty of spring onions and ginger. To save time, cut the potato strips and soak in water, and prepare the sauce in advance. So when your guests arrive, you need to fry the potatoes and toss it straight into the sauce. It is great finger food that will vanish fast from the plate!


Serve with Hakka Noodles and Kung Pao Vegetables .
