The entire nation is glued to their TV screens watching the gentleman’s game Cricket! Every year during the IPL (Indian Premier League) we tend to host a couple of game nights at our home. Usually, a typical game night consists of a couple of our close friends who come over and watch the IPL match together.
Being a cricket enthusiast, I never want to miss the action of the game whilst I’m in the kitchen! So this is where I let my culinary chops take over. I tend to cook up some delicious
finger food that is easy to make.
My famous Baked Potato wedges are one such dish! Your guests will be left asking for more and you can just kick back and prep everything in advance so you don’t miss a single second of the game! Serve this with a couple of dips on the side and you are good to go!
So friends, do try this recipe.
