Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Boil the potatoes for 5 mins. Drain well, place back in the pan, cover with a lid and shake vigorously to lightly roughen up the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, grind the spices using a pestle and mortar until lightly crushed, then mix with the oil. Put the spice mix in a roasting tin and place in the oven to heat up. Carefully put the potatoes into the roasting tin, tossing them in the hot oil and spice mixture. Roast in the oven for 40-45 mins or until crisp and golden, turning once or twice during cooking.

Amazing potatoes. Me and my bf are huge spice addicts, and I may have added more spices, but there were so good. Very morish. Im making them again as I write this

Great recipe, and so simple. Personally we prefer our roasties smaller, and although we halved the quantity of potato for just 2 of us, we didn't halve the spices, as like a good hit. Also added some ground sea salt to the mix. Never been a huge fan of roast potatoes, but these are so moreish. Highly recommended.

I made these to go with 'Honey Glazed Chicken' (also on here) and they were really nice. I didn't really change anything. I didn't have any coriander seeds so used coriander powder, so had to guess the quantity.
I chopped the potatoes into smaller chunks so they didn't take as long to bake. I did still boil them for 5 mins also.
Overall a nice easy side dish which I think would go well with most dishes.
