How to prepare a tornado potato at homeLast updated on Jun 21, 2020, 12:53 am
Tornado potato is a delicious dish that everyone loves to munch on.
But because of the pandemic, most of us cannot head to our favorite food joints to relish its unforgettable taste.
You can easily prepare it at home without much ado, though.
Here is a simple recipe to help you prepare lip-smacking tornado potato right at home.
Microwaving the potatoes
To prepare tornado potatoes at home, start off by taking out some big sized potatoes from your stock.
Wash them thoroughly, and then microwave for around a minute. Once you take them out, the potatoes will be a little bit tender.
Next, you have to insert a skewer at the center of the potatoes (as shown in the image).
Cutting the potatoes
The next step is to cut the potatoes precisely.
For this, hold the skewer from the top and cut the potatoes with a sharp knife in a whirlwind motion.
Take your time and work on every spiral. Try to make the potatoes as thin as you can, this will add that much-desired crunch and crisp to the final dish.
Fill a sauce pan with some oil in a way that the potatoes get completely submerged in it.
Next, using the skewer, put the potatoes in the pan for deep frying. Keep turning them throughout so that all the sides get perfectly cooked.
Once the potatoes turn golden-brown, take them out and place on a tissue paper.
Final seasoning and plating
When most of the oil is soaked by the tissue, remove it.
To prepare your own seasoning at home, mix together chilli powder, cinnamon powder, chilli flakes, oregano, garlic, ginger and cardamom powder, sugar and salt to taste. Sprinkle it nicely over the potatoes.
Lastly, add some finely grated, fresh mozzarella cheese over the potato tornado.
