Potato fingers Meaning in English

Potato fingers refer to potatoes ( boiled or micro waved) which are cut lengthwise into 10 to 12 fingers. These potato fingers may be then rolled in cheese and baked for 5 to 8 minutes. They are usually served with sour cream and chives. Commercially available pre packed potato fingers are available in frozen state which can be fried or saute'd as per recipe requirement after thawing. Pre-made potato fingers have been available for home cooking since the 1970s, usually having been pre-fried (or sometimes baked), frozen and placed in a sealed plastic bag. Later varieties include those which have been battered and breaded. They have numerous variants, such as "thick-cut fingers", "steak fingers", "shoestring fries", "jojo fries", "crinkle fries", and "curly fries". They can also be coated with breading and spices, which include garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, paprika, and salt to create "seasoned fries", or cut thickly with the skin left on to create potato wedges.
