- 3 kgs potatoes peeled and cut into even sizes
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil or olive oil
- 6-7 cloves garlic chopped
- 2 royco chicken cubes
- 1 tbsp rosemary dried or fresh
- 1 tbsp thyme dried or fresh
- 1 tbsp mint leaves dried or fresh
- 1/4 tsp cayenne powder
- 1 tsp black pepper
To parboil the potatoes
Peel the potatoes, cut into even sizes
Wash the potatoes in cold water to get rid of starch
Put the potatoes in a pot, add cold or hot water to cover the potatoes
Add salt and parboil for 6-7 minutes until ready
To make garlic-herb seasoning
As the potatoes parboil, on medium heat, add vegetable oil in a small pot
Add the garlic and cook it for 1-2 minutes
Add the butter, the royco chicken cubes, rosemary, thyme and mint leaves, cook for 1 minute
Finally add the cayenne and black pepper powders
Getting ready for the oven
Drain the water from the potatoes, return the pot on the stove and low heat drain the excess water off for 2 minutes
Shake the pot until the outside of the potatoes roughen out, this roughness will crisp up during roasting
Pour the seasoning over the roast potatoes to enhance the flavors of the roast potatoes
Roast the potatoes for 30 minutes until golden and flip the potatoes and roast for another 20-30 minutes until golden and crispy.
The best potatoes to use are Yukon Gold or russet potatoes.
Don't skip the step of roughing the potatoes for that extra crispness of the potatoes.
The potatoes should be in a single layer in the roasting sheet and roast on high heat.
