How to make crispy Oven Roasted Potatoes

Who doesn’t love perfectly baked oven-roasted potatoes? These spicy, crispy herbed potatoes are delicious on their own but best served with a yogurt dip as an appetizer or maybe as a side dish. However you serve them, you are going to love my oven-roasted recipe. Super simple to make and turns out so crispy and delicious.

The secret to these flavourful oven-roasted potatoes is to boil them in the microwave for a couple of minutes with some salt and water. Believe me, this little step always makes potatoes taste even better. Boiling them with salt for only a couple of minutes lets the salt seep into the potatoes a bit which keeps the potatoes from tasting bland on the inside. And of course, we will keep the skin on for that crispy layer that we love!

  • 2-3 Potatoes medium-size
  • tbsp Cornstarch
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tbsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika adjust as per spice level you love
  • 1 tbsp Dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • ½ Green onion stalk for garnish



  • Preheat Oven at 400℉
  • In a bowl add chopped potatoes with ½ tsp salt and water (enough to cover the potatoes). Microwave for 5 minutes. Strain and dry them using a towel and yes this step makes a huge difference in the time of cooking and making potatoes more flavorful.
  • After drying them; add cornstarch to coat the potatoes well. Add olive oil and coat the potatoes well. Add in all the spices along with chopped garlic. Mix well to coat and space the potatoes so that they get evenly cooked.
  • Bake for 15 mins. Take the potatoes out, give them a mix scraping off any spices that are stuck on the bottom. If you are using parchment paper them don’t worry it won’t stick. Broil them on low heat for 15 minutes flipping them over half-way through.


  • Serve them as a side dish or as an appetizer with some yogurt dip!
