Instructions

  1. Soaking: Ideally you would soak your cut potatoes in water overnight. However, if that is not possible then at least soak them for a few hours, or one hour or the very least, 15 minutes. Even a short soak time will remove some the starch from the potatoes, allowing them to get nice and crispy in the oven.
  2. Preheat your oven to 410F (210C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. The trick to crispy potatoes is drying off the soaked potatoes with a paper towel. Just gently pat them dry to remove any excess water. This will allow you to get crispy fries instead of just steamed potatoes.
  4. Place the dried off potato strips in a large bowl and toss with olive oil, turmeric, coriander, cumin, mustard powder, fenugreek and salt until well coated.
  5. Bake the fries for 30 to 45 minutes, flipping them twice while baking, until fries reach desired crispiness.
  6. Remove fries from the oven, season with more salt to taste and sprinkle with a bit of fresh, chopped cilantro before serving them with your favorite ketchup or sauce.
