  • 1.5 kgs small white potatoes

Spice Mix

  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves grated or minced
  • 5-6 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil plus more to top up
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Chili flakes or powder (optional)


  • Wash potatoes and boil in salted water until they are cooked
  • In the meantime, add spice mix to a small bowl
  • Once potatoes are cooked, drain into a large bowl
  • Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F
  • Pour spice mix on the potatoes and toss around so they are all nicely coated
  • Place potatoes on a greased oven tray, making sure there is space between them
  • Using a flat glass or small bowl, press down on each potato so that they flatten down. Don’t place too much force to mash them, however enough pressure to smash them down so they expand
  • Using a cooking brush, brush any leftover spice marinade into all the corners. If the potatoes seem dry, brush on some more olive oil so they are nicely coated
  • Place into the oven and cook for approx 45-60 minutes (depending on oven strength). You want a nice golden colour with a crisp outer layer
  • Serve on the side of your favourite meal and enjoy!
