Baked Cajun Potatoes is one of the easiest appetizers that can make you showstopper in any get-together. With few easily available ingredients at home, you can make it any time of the day. For me, I don’t wait for any occasion to make this recipe. Just 30 minutes and your yummy and super delicious snack is ready to indulge into it.

Though I am making this recipe of Baked Cajun Potatoes at home for more than 2 years now it never came to my mind to put it on my blog until one of my friend who visited home and after tasting these Homemade Cajun potatoes said,” Is this recipe on your blog? I want to try this soon.”

Ahhhh!!!! Better late than never. So I thought to pen down the recipe immediately.

I really don’t know who invented this superb recipe but a few years back when I visited Barbeque Nation, I got a chance to taste this. Believe me that was like love at first sight. And after that, I tried to create the same version at home.  Just to make it little healthier, instead of deep-frying I baked the potatoes. But there is no compromise with the taste and yet guilt-free.

All potato lovers, now you have one more reason to love potatoes. These crispy baked baby potatoes tossed in spices are a bomb. If you are looking for more such easy party snacking options then you may like to check

Baked Cajun Potatoes

The recipe starts with cooking the potatoes. Clean the baby potatoes to remove all the dust on them. Then parboil them. Make sure these are not overcooked or mushy. I prefer to cook them in a pressure cooker until one whistle.

After cooking, let them cool down and then using the pressure of your palm, crush them (to flatten them). Few people don’t like the skin so they can peel off the skin and then prepare the dish otherwise the peel adds a nice texture to these baby potatoes.

Meanwhile keep the oven for preheating at 200 °C.Baked cajun potatoes crushed potatoes

Sprinkle some olive oil, salt and rice flour on these potatoes. Toss them well and then line on a baking tray. Bake these potatoes for 20 minutes at 200 °C. Rice flour will help to make the crust crispy. In case you don’t have rice flour, you can use corn-flour too.

To make the sauce, in a bowl take mayonnaise, Tomato ketchup, chili sauce, mixed herbs, chili flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, and olive oil. Mix everything well. This will make the mildly spicy sauce but in case you love more spicy food, you can increase the amount of chili sauce.

The sauce will be thick at this stage. To make it of pouring consistency, add 3 tablespoons of milk to it and whisk it. Our Cajun sauce is ready. By this time our potatoes are also baked.
