If you are a person who does not love waru (potatoes) I don’t know waru doing with your life? hahahha see what I did there? Honestly, waru is bae. I love potatoes anyway any how. Deep fried, shallow fried, mashed, scalloped. I can eat it all day everyday.

Potato wedges are my go to way to have waru. It’s easy and fast. Best part is you do not even have to peel the potato. I sometimes leave them on just scrub them clean, cut them boil them with salt and whatever spice then deep fry or oven bake. Easy peasy.

Happy cooking!
