Simple Roast Potatoes

I love potatoes in any form. Curried, in stews, fried, roasted , plain, boiled ................  Unfortunately my elderst son doesnt share the same love for it unless its crispy like chips.  I recently made roast potatoes and they turned out perfect, crispy on the outside and nice and soft in the inside. I think the secret was parboiling the potatoes  and then roasting them. 

Recipe: Simple Roast Potatoes

about 3 large regular potatoes
water for boiling
olive oil or butter, melted

1. Peel and cut the potatoes in to large pieces. Place in lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes till almost tender.

2. Drain and let it stay in the colander for 5 - 10 minutes, then toss in  olive oil  ( a generous amount about 2-3 tbsp) or melted butter. Season with salt. Put everything in a baking tray , make sure they are in one layer.

3. Place in a preheated oven  about 200 degree celsius gas mark 5  till golden and crispy outside. Give the baking tray a shake every now and then so the potatoes get roasted evenly.

Serve!!! and Enjoy!!!
