    1. Hi Shamina,

      Italian Seasoning is basically equal portions of dried thyme, oregano, savory, marjoram, basil, sage and rosemary.
      Hope that helps.

  1. I have tried this recipe many times now and liked it each time. It’s quite a hit. My husband is a picky eater and he loves this preparation. I must say i have tried so many recipes from your site and got some good compliments from my husband.

  2. Hi Hetal/Anuja,
    Thanks for your all wonderful recipes, you both are doing great job. this is one of the great n easy to do. i have one query- i am planning to purchase ‘Oven’ or microwave but not sure what is good for my need.
    basically i am veggie gujrati :), n like oven as it saves time n effort. while microwave i had used in past for mostly reheating or quick baking. so Oven can be used for reheating and what would be more useful for baking such non-fried items?

    1. Hi Sangita,

      Both microwaves and regular ovens have different uses. We use both of ours equally. A regular oven is great for baking…something that is challenging using a microwave. Microwaves are faster. You have to see what kind of cooking you do more and then decide.

  3. I have viewed many web reipes and these ladies are “second to none” in the quality of this video. The written version of the recipe is included and this is often omitted by others.
    Excellent job, ladies!

  4. A variation to the main theme.

    Wedges are perfectly fine, but you could cut the potatoes in french fry style with a special cutter, though wedges would work fine too. We peel off the skin. Soak in water.

    Now the variation.

    Parboil the peeled and cut potatoes for some 7-8 minutes in good quantity of water, drain and continue as above. Boiling in water helps reduce the starch content to a little extent.

  8. Hello Hetal and Anuja,
    Will the same recipe work for green bananas (plaintains) as being a Jain we dont eat potatoes?
    please let me know.

  9. …one more thing Cassandra,

    Yes, you can use other masalas. The taste will not be exactly what we have shown, but it still will be delicious!

  10. Hi Cassandra,

    Chaat masala is a combination of many different spices – most notably, dry mango powder and black salt. This gives chaat masala a tangy and unique flavor which is not there in other masalas. You can find chaat masala at any Indian grocery store.

  11. Hi Hetal & Anuja,

    Thanks for the Recipe. (Potato Wedges )

    I like the fact that your video and your content

    Thanks again!

    Shivani
