Eggs are a universal food and many people like them fried, boiled, scrambled, or baked. They are easy to incorporate into food. Eggs may be the most important ingredient in your fridge! They’re nutritious, they taste great, and their physical properties and components make them indispensable in the kitchen. Eggs are used to cover food with crumbs, flour, etc. as eggs help to adhere to these ingredients and give a brown appearance when cooked. Eggs have a sticky nature that allows them to glue two pieces of dough or noodles or to provide a sticky surface for sprinkling seeds.
Flour is often used as a coating agent and as well as the main ingredient in many baking recipes. It can be used with different seasonings, salt, paprika, and garlic powder like it is used in this recipe. Coating of flour gives a crispy texture to potato wedges and beautiful golden color.

Granulated sugar as the word says has tiny grains. This type of sugar has a coarse feeling as the grains are a little bigger. The granulated sugar is used in baking goods. Mostly it is used to sprinkle on different baked goods as the grains don’t stick to each other and gives a nice presentation.
Cornstarch acts as a thickener in soups, sauces, stews, and cake fillings. It sometimes also acts as a binder that also gives a beautiful golden color to the fried items. Cornstarch is preferred over flour to thick gravies or soups.
● Vanilla sugar:
Vanilla sugar is a sugar formed from vanilla after infusing sugar with vanilla for a long period. It’s granulated in texture and is added to a variety of baked goods such as cookies, pastries, cakes, etc. Vanilla sugar adds up the flavor to the dish.
