    Wondering what I did wrong. Mine didn’t turn out that great. They were dry from inside and color was more yellowish then redish.

    Thanks

      Hi Rosy!!!!
      Did you marinate Potatoes for at least 1 hour? I think the kind of potatoes you used may needs more marination time. Try it next time and increase the marination time from 1 hour to 2 hour.
      And about the color, it really depends on the chili powder you used. Some chili powder gives dark red color and some light red. I would not worry much about the color.
      Thanks.
