Cajun potatoes

Cajun potato is one of the veg starters served in one of the well-known chain outlet in India the barbecue nation. It is one of the most liked dish by many customers.

My husband had never tasted it and I made an attempt to prepare it so that it tasted very close to the one served at barbecue nation.


Recipe :

Ingredients :

  • around 300-400 gms baby potatoes (approx. 12 potatoes)
  • salt
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp red chilli powder
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp fresh cream
  • 1 tbsp Cajun spice mix
  • few sprigs of coriander leaves, chopped
  • oil for deep-frying
  • water

Method :

  1. Boil the potatoes in pressure cooker for 4-5 whistles. While boiling add little salt to the water in the pressure cooker.
  2. Once the pressure is released, drain the water. Press the potatoes slightly between your palms so that they are smashed a little.
  3. Arrange them on a plate.
  4. Make a thick batter of all-purpose flour and cornflour. It should not be too watery. Drizzle this over the potatoes.
  5. Deep fry these potatoes till slightly brown and crispy. Drain them on a paper towel.
  6. Meanwhile, in another bowl mix onion, mayo, cream, Cajun spice mix and red chilli powder. Check the taste. I was not required to add any salt as the cajun spice mix was a bit salty already.
  7. Place the deep-fried potatoes in a serving dish and drizzle the Cajun dressing over it.
  8. Garnish with coriander leaves.
