  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C (fan assisted).
  2. Step 2

    Put prepared potatoes into a saucepan with just enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Cover. Bring to the boil. Allow potatoes to boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Drain potatoes very well. This is best done through a colander. Return potatoes to the pan over a low heat to allow any excess water to evaporate. With the lid on shake the pan to ‘rough’ up the potatoes.
  4. Step 4

    Pour oil into a roasting pan and heat in the oven until hot. Add the potatoes in a single layer, turning them to coat in the oil. Roast for 30 minutes. Turn potatoes and roast a further 15-20 minutes, until golden and crispy. Season with salt and serve immediately.
