*Oil the plate in which the cheese potato fingers are kept.
*Heat up a pan, add two spoons of oil and roll the oil on the pan evenly.
*On a medium flame, cook the potato cheese fingers. Each side will take 7-8 minutes on slow flame to cook.
*Keep switching sides and moving the pan so that it gets cooked from all sides.

*Enjoy with any dip or chutney or ketchup of your choice.
Go easy on salt because it will have a lot of cheese, which may contain salt too.
Parmesan cheese is preferred as it doesn’t melt when shallow-fried.
It is a good idea to use a piping bag so that all fingers come out the same size.
