Sour Cream Sauce

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Reserve refrigerated until needed.

 Potato Spirals

  1. Use a spiral cutter to cut one of the potatoes into a long spiral where each “slice” is about the same thickness as a quarter. Immediately transfer potato spiral into a bowl of cold water to avoid oxidizing.
  2. Heat a large pot of oil to 350°F. Drain all the water off the potato spiral and pat dry with paper towels. Place potato spiral into the oil and fry the potato spiral until it starts to turn golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. (Frying one potato at a time is recommended.)
  3. Remove potato from the oil and place it on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  4. To serve: Add potato spiral to a wood skewer. Drizzle some of the Sour Cream Sauce over the potatoes. Garnish with grated cheese and chopped scallions. (One spiral serves 2 to 4 people.) Serve immediately.
  5. Repeat process with the remaining potato.
