Chicken Pilau Vegetarian Dhansak Class Library Presentation by Rita Potato Matchsticks / Sali from scratch
The Indian Parsi community calls “Potato Matchsticks” – “Potato Sali”. Sali is a Gujarati word meaning “straw” or “sticks”.
Enjoyed best when fresh with salt and pepper. Bon Appetite!
Step 1: Peel and wash Potatoes:
Step 2: Shred potatoes into thin strings:
Step 3: Salt Shredded Potatoes :
Step 4: In a electric fryer or a large pot, heat oil for frying. I prefer the electric deep fryer, so the temperature of the oil stays even. Choose the max and lower if needed :
Step 6: Prepare Potato Matchsticks for straining, use a large straining spoon with holes :
Step 7: Strain fried potato matchsticks on paper towels (to absorb extra oil). Immediately sprinkle salt on. This keeps the Potato Matchsticks crispy.
Cool and store in airtight container. (In my house they get eaten away very fast for a snack! Potato Matchsticks will stay for 15 days)
Enjoyed best when fresh with salt and pepper.
Suggestion: Serve these potato matchsticks as a garnish with chicken & gravy
Cooking tips for making better Deep Fried Potato Sticks/Parsi Sali
Keep the potato sticks grated and kept in extra salted water till all the potatoes are grated and then rinse it out , squeeze water out and fried handful at a time.
I soak them in salted water and I do not sprinkle any salt after deep frying the potato sticks.
Fry the potato sticks nice and crispy.
Add these crispy fried potato sticks/sali only at the last moment (while plating) on top of your dish.
