Crunchy Roast Potato Recipe

Perfectly brown and crunchy!
Keyword roast potato
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6 people


  • 6-8 potatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tbsp mixed seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Spice Mix

  • 1/2 tsp chili spice
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 medium cloves of garlic chopped


  • Rinse and cut all the potatoes in half (peels on) 
    Roughly pierce the potatoes with a fork for even cooking and set aside in a bowl
    Heat the oven to 180/190 degrees
    Lay the oven tray with baking paper for easy clean up (optional)
    Add all the spices (and chopped garlic) in a mortar and pestle with 5ml of oil & mix into almost a rough paste not too smooth 
    Rub the spice into the potatoes, add spices/salt if required and lay them onto the baking pan
    Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and bake for 10 minutes before turning around and continue baking till golden brown and crunchy (about another 10 minutes) 


Any salt works but for roast potato I always go for coarse salt but that's your call.
If you don't have a mortar and pestle you can use a bowl and a teaspoon as long as you mix everything together. 
Cut the potatoes into cubes if they are large instead of halves and whatever you do don't remove the peels that's where all the goodness lies and the skins crunch up perfectly!
If your potatoes are too big you can cover your tray in foil for the first 5-10 minutes so that they can cook from the inside out.
Remove the foil and return to the oven for the last 10 minutes.
