Oven Roasted Potatoes

Roasted Potatoes
Oven roasted red potatoes seasoned with Indian spices and herbs.  Everytime I cook potatoes, I try different seasonings.  Until now, rosemary and garlic were our favorite spices.  These desi style chatpate Aloo have become our new favorite.

Red Potatoes - about 500 gms
Oil - 2 tbsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper/Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Ground Cumin/Jeera Powder - 1/2 tsp
Kasuri Methi/Dry Fenugreek Leaves - 1 tsp
Garlic Powder - 1 tsp
Kala Namak/Indian Rock Salt

How to roast potatoes in an oven:
  • Preheat the oven at 400 degrees F.  Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
  • In a big mixing bowl, add oil, fresh ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, chat masala, cumin, garlic, salt and kasuri methi.  Crush the kasuri methi leaves between your palms before adding to the bowl.  If Kala Namak is not available, use regular salt.  Mix all the ingredients well.  You can add more oil if you like.
  • Wash/scrub the potatoes well.  Pat them dry.  Dice each potato lengthwise into 4 parts.  Cut each quarter into 2.
  • Add the diced potatoes to the bowl and toss them well.
  • Spread the potatoes evenly on the tray.  Bake for about 30 minutes.  Using a fork check if the potatoes are cooked.
Serve Asian style roasted potatoes as a side dish.
