Easy Thai Inspired Fried Potatoes with thai red paste!

I am in love with Thai cuisine have been trying several innovations with thai red paste. I make them home and stock it in large quantities. Make them whenever feel like. This is Thai Fried potatoes another unique version. Have tried egg curry with red paste and thai red chicken and loved it Guess I am getting addicted to thai food and not bad to get addicted if it’s for good cause right ;)

Thai Fried Potatoes

This is easy dish and can be made instantly. The potatoes are crunchy on exterior, soft from within and leaves a burst of flavors on your palette. My hubby drooled over it and finished them in seconds. Had made this dish with khichdi. Hmmmm yum yum I am hungry writing about it late night cravings you see.

Thai Fried Potatoes

In our house if I cook pulao, khichdi or anything simple something tasty has to accompany with a tasty side dish. Accompaniments would be chicken fry, potato fry, fish fry fish pickle, omelette etc. This is mandatory in our house else main course won’t easily gulp down the throat. Hence I come up with varieties if savories and side starters.

Thai Fried Potatoes

I have made this dish with potatoes you could make with paneer, tofu, aubergines etc. I have tried few thai recipes on my blog check some recipes below.

  1. Homemade Thai Red Curry Paste
  2. Thai Red Curry with Egg
  3. Thai Tofu Curry
  4. Thai Red Curry Chicken

I prefer making thai red paste at home as it’s fresh, without shrimp paste and fish sauce. Not that I am a pure vegetarian but wonder what goes in making a fish sauce. Hence like to make red thai paste at home and as much as I want.

Thai Fried Potatoes

Garnish with lime wedges and basil leaves. Squeeze some lime juice and serve hot with sauce, chutney Or cup of tea.

Tips for Thai Fried Potatoes:

  1. You could marinate in the fridge overnight. I have used freezer for ten mins to make them instantly.
  2. If your thai red paste is hot then squeeze some lime juice.
  3. You could use semolina to coat the marinated potatoes instead of flour. Semolina will give an added crunchy texture to your potatoes.
  4. Squeeze some lime juice for a tangy twist.
  5. I have parboiled the potatoes if you wish you could try with raw potatoes. However I prefer parboiled potatoes as it gives a better taste.

These look yummy! What a great idea. When I lived in Mumbai three years back, there were very few Thai restaurants there, After comming to US I became a big Thai food fan. Thanks for your recipe.
