1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

How to cut the potato wedges.

Cut the potatoes into wedges, making sure the bottom of the skin is wider(not too thick, not too thin) so they stand upright as shown in the images, think how you would cut an apple, the wedges are slightly wider at the bottom.

 

How to prepare the potato fries

Place the Potato wedges in a glass bowl and microwave for 3-4 minutes to take out extra moisture.

Once microwaved, transfer the potato wedges into a large bowl or pan, pour in the oil over the Potatoes, followed by turmeric, chilli powder and salt to season.

Cover the bowl with a flat lid or plate and shake vigorously.

Make sure all the wedges are evenly coated with chilli powder, turmeric, oil and salt. Taste to check if the seasoning of Salt is adequate.

 

How to bake the potato fries.

 

Preheat oven to 200C.

Prepare the baking dish by covering it with parchment paper and brush with a thin coat of oil.

Spread the potato wedges as shown in the picture with the wedges standing on their skin.

If you’ve cut the wedges as mentioned above, they should stand alone. place them together, so even if you slice a few thin wedges, they can lean on to the thicker potato wedges.

Place the baking dish with the potatoes in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.

20 minutes into baking, take out the tray and lightly brush oil over them and return the wedges into the oven and continue baking.

You will have no need to flip them over but once 30 minutes are over, use a fork to check if they are cooked through, if you find them less crispy, continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes more.

Serve immediately with your favorite dip or a bowl of salt and chilli powder mixed together.
