This is the name I have given for this recipe, you can call it potato fingers, golden crisp potatoes or whatever you like.
I had tasted this in a house warming ceremony of our friend and fell in love with this ever since. I tried to replicate the taste and texture at home and slightly tweaked the recipe to suit our family palate. These crispies can be served as a tea time snack or as a starter for parties and even goes well with Bisi Bele Baath or regular Rasam rice or any kind off variety rice .
