Chilli-Honey sauce is one of my favorite spicy sauces and i love using it with fry food – with spring rolls, fried dumplings or fry noodles. It fits perfectly to fried potatoes as well

Chilli-honey potatoes are great variation of normal French fries – if you want to spice up regular fried potatoes recipe – here is how you can do it.

It can be served as a snack, starter or even as a side dish.
