Potato wedges are a variation of 'French fries'. As their name suggests, they are wedges of potatoes, often large and unpeeled, that are either baked or fried. They are sold at diners and fast food restaurants. In some regions of the United States, potato wedges are known as “jojos”.

     I have tried these potato wedges with a 'thyme' flavour. You can make these fries simply salted. Easy to make recipe. Kids would love the wedges. Can be served as a starter or evening snack.

Potatoes- 4
Corn flour- ¼ cup
Pepper- ½ teaspoon
Salt- to taste
Thyme- ½ teaspoon (optional)
Oil, to drizzle- 1 teaspoon
Oil- to deep fry


  • Boil or Pressure cook the potatoes (say 75% cooked) around three whistles on medium flame.
  • Cut the potatoes into wedges(as shown in the photo). First cut the potato in to equal halves. Then halve the each half into 2 equal pieces. Then further halve the pieces to 2 more halves. You would have now got 8 wedges from a single potato.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes with pepper,salt, thyme and little oil if you like and mix well.
  • Coat the potatoes with corn flour.
  • Deep fry this potatoes in smoking hot oil till 'slight golden colour'. Drain them and fry them in batches. When you fry the last batch the first batch will be ready to be fried again.
  • Then once again fry the fried potatoes till 'crisp and dark golden'.
  • Serve with Ketchup or Mayonnaise.
