Fried Wedges Potatoes with Cajun Spices

I bought 2 bags of 5 pound Idaho's potatoes without realized I still have a bag of red potatoes at home..Well ,so what should I do with all this potatoes..Potatoes is relatively inexpensive and it's a staple side dish for many westerner or American. Hubby loves any kinds of potatoes especially french fries and mashed potatoes.So I decided to experiment wedges fried potatoes and the outcome is really beyond my expectation!!

5-6 medium size potatoes,scrub clean and washed,then cut vertical to 6 pieces each
2 tbsp Cajun spices
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp salt
1 cup self raising flour +1/4 cup rice flour,mix well
1 cup cooking oil
1:Season the wedge cut potatoes with Cajun spices,sugar and salt for 30 minutes or longer.
2:Heat fryer or pot with oil at medium high heat.Coated seasoning wedge with flour mixture well,shake the excess flour from potatoes.
3:Then slowly place the coated potatoes into the hot oil.Fry the potatoes until lightly golden brown,then dish out on the paper towel.
4:Serve warm with main dish.

Yummy, I love this kind of fried crispy potato wedges. But these days, I only buy sweet potato, haven't bought any potato in ages.

Now, I am in my L.A.Z.Y mode. So it's either I go get the frozen ones and fry at home, or maybe, I can just go straight to KFC and order these wedges. Can get with cheese as well! Hahaha...

I always roast the potato wedges in the oven and never fried it. But I don't mind having yours as it look so crispy.
