I love me some potatoes.
Some random Tuesday last week I decide to cook some potatoes I’d been given by my mother in love. As usual I baked them. It’s funny how they are called roast potatoes anyway as long I don’t deep fry, I’m good.
This recipe closely resembles this, only that I was aiming for more spice so I used paprika and black pepper plus a little dried parsley.
I peeled the potatoes, washed and wedged them. Then in a sufuria I add the potato wedges and cover with water add a good amount of salt then bring that to a boil.
As the potatoes are cooking, prepare the coating. This time I decide to try something different. Instead of coating the potatoes while on the baking tray, I put all the spices in a ziploc bag. In case you don’t have one you can use an ordinary polythene bag. In the bag add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, 2-3 tablespoons of paprika,1/2 teaspoon of black pepper and some dried parley. Then shake and shake.
Once the potatoes are ready, you want them semi cooked, drain, then pat dry with a kitchen towel. Toss the potatoes into the ziploc bag that has the spice mixture, shake some more untill all the potatoes are well coated.
Remember to pre heat the oven at 350.
Line you baking tray with some aluminium foil, then spread out the potato wedges in one layer.
Let them bake for about 20-25 minutes.
Spicy, crunchy and delicious. Served them with some
fish fingers ,chicken smokies. Had my accompaniments all mixed up.
