Baked Italian Potato Wedges

Baked Italian Potato Wedges 1

Nabeel’s Tiffin menu for the week is almost fixed – 2 days roasted Makhana, 2 days Stuffed Paratha and 1 day Homemade French fries. It’s adhered to so religiously that even the days for each snack is fixed. It may seem boring to you and me but Nabeel loves his Tiffin snacks and looks forward to them at the beginning of the week. However, this New Year I have decided to break away from the monotonous routine and introduce new Tiffin treats which he may accept easily.

Italian Potato Wedges

So here’s my first of the many Tiffin treats, Baked Italian Potato Wedges. I plan to replace the French fries with this healthy and much tastier option. The Potato Wedges are made using minimal ingredients and are ready in a jiffy. You can play with the flavours depending on your child’s taste buds, try flavours like dried garlic flakes, pepper, mixed herbs, a local spice mix, etc. These wedges also work well as an after school treat and a vegetarian starter when paired with a rich flavourful dip.
