Crispy Roasted Potatoes

By 15:42 ,


1 kg roasting potatoes (I used Maris Piper)

100g duck/goose fat or butter or olive oil (I used olive oil)

Little bit of flour for dusting

Salt to taste


1.     Peel the potatoes and half them if they are small to medium sized

2.    Put them on a pan and add water and boil them

3.    Add salt

4.    Boil for 10 minutes. After that lift one out with a skewer and see if the outer edge is fluffy. Run the point of the skewer along the surface – if it stays smooth, boil for few more minute

5.    Drain the potatoes. Shake the pot back and forth a few times to fluff up the outsides. Sprinkle with the flour, and shake so they are evenly and thinly coated

6.    Pre heat the oven 180c in fan oven and place the roasting pan in the oven

7.    When the pan is hot add the olive oil and heat the oil

8.    Bring the tray out and place the potatoes on the hot oil

9.    They will sizzle in the hot oil

10. Turn them so that each potato is coated with fat

11.  Place them in single layer

12. Roast them for 15 mins and then turn them over

13. Keep turning over periodically until each side is golden and crisp
Sprinkle salt and serve straight way
