ROAST POTATOES

ROAST POTATOES

Roast potatoes - arguably the most important part of any roast dinner, be it Christmas dinner or the Sunday Roast, the perfect roastie is what every cook wants. Here I show you the proper way to make lush crispy roast potatoes which are light and fluffy on the inside. Most probably a slightly different way to what you have seen before, but believe me, once you have done them tis way - there is no going back! Remember to let the potatoes dry after boiling.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES: 4

6 medium/ large peeled potatoes cut into equal sizes (ideally red duke or maris pipers)

200ml vegetable oil

salt flakes

METHOD

Add the potatoes to a large pan of salted simmering water and continue to poach for 10 to 15 minutes.

Once the potatoes are cooked, lift out of the pan with a slotted spoon and leave them to air dry on a cooling wire.

Whilst the potatoes are cooling, add the oil to a large roasting tray and pre heat the oven to 200°c.

Place the tray into the oven for the oil to heat up.

Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potatoes.

Put the tray back in to the oven and roast for a good 25 minutes before turning.

Then cook for another 20 minutes until golden and crispy.

Once cooked remove from the tray and season with flaky salt.
