Spiced potato wedges

Preparation time:

Cooking time:
25 mins
Banish that bag of frozen wedges from your freezer and rustle up these homemade beauties in next to no time!


1kg waxy potatoes(sebago or ruby-red)
2 Tbsp cornflour
¼ tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp garlic salt
Vegetable oil, for frying
Chicken salt, to serve

If you want your wedges to be extra spicy, just add more paprika.


1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Put 2 roasting pans or high-sided oven trays in the oven to heat.

2. Meanwhile, cut potatoes lengthways into thin wedges, about 1.5cm thick.

3. Put cornflour, paprika and garlic salt in a large zip-lock bag and shake well to combine. Add potato wedges and shake until well coated.

4. Remove trays from oven. Add enough oil to each tray to form a thin pool. Return trays to oven for 3 minutes.

5. Remove trays from oven and, working quickly, arrange coated wedges on trays. Roast for 20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Sprinkle with chicken salt and serve immediately.

    I am happy to report that some of the latest studies have freed salt (sodium) from the stigma of being very dangerous to your health. Moderation is indicated, but total avoidance is not. Making this? Use less salt for the rest of the day, to balance out your use. Simple.
