Spice up your appetizer game this monsoon with my Smashed Potatoes recipe.
Spicy Smashed Potato with Gochujang Mayo is an absolute flavor bomb- it’s crispy, spicy and deliciously creamy. It’s a perfect way to indulge in your crispy potato cravings. This dish is a little more redeeming than French fries as it’s baked.
What makes this recipe unique is my signature Gochujang Mayo. Gochujang is a thick and spicy crimson paste fundamentally used in Korean cuisine. This mouth-tingling sauce pairs superbly well with the creamy texture of mayo. The sauce adds a mild tanginess and a rich umami taste to this comforting snack.
This wholesome snack is perfect for rainy and glooming evenings. Make sure you serve it right off the oven for an extra crisp texture.
