Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes

“Hasselback potatoes” – When I came across the name through one of my blogger friend, Preethi. I was pulled towards the recipe, since my kids loves baked and fried potatoes. Coming to the name – It is derived from the restaurant where they were introduced in the 1940s, Hasselbacken in Stockholm, Sweden.

Here the potatoes are sliced thinly and rubbed with the masalas and baked. The masalas, I have used here are authentic Indian masalas. Medium sized potatoes work best.
