Tasty spicy roast potatoes, cooked by the Chef at work


  • 1 Kg Desiree or King Edward potatoes (roasting spuds)
  • 1tsp tumeric powder
  • 1tsp black onion seeds
  • 1tsp cumin seeds
  • 1tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1tsp mild curry powder
  • rapeseed oil (enough to mix ingredients into a paste)
  • salt and pepper


  • STEP 1
    Prepare potatoes for roasting. Cut them into quarters along the length of the potato and roast, par boil or steam until just starting to go soft
  • STEP 2
    While potatoes are still warm, toss them in the spice paste ensuring they're well coated. Doing this while they are still hot is key as that allows the flavour to be absorbed by the potato.
  • STEP 3
    Once they have cooled off, roast in a pretty hot (220 degrees Celsius ish) oven until cooked. Serve either hot or cold
