Bengali-Style Oven-Fried Potatoes

Yield: 8 servings

  • 2 lb Russet potatoes
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/4 ts Turmeric
  • 1/2 ts Cumin
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne
  • Salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400F. Remove oven racks & spray them with oil. Wash potatoes & slice them lengthwise into sticks 1/2" thick or crosswise into rounds 1/3" thick.

Transfer to a baking pan & spray well with oil. Add seasonings & toss to coat. Place the rounds in a single layer on the oven racks. Place the racks in the centre of the oven. Bake until the potatoes are tender, with a deep, golden-brown crust, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve piping hot.
