AWED Greek Event - Greek Oven Roasted Potatoes

I have been thinking of preparing this for a while and kept making other things. Here is my entry for AWED : Greek event,hosted by Curry leaf.

The following recipe is inspired by this one.

Greek Oven Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes - 2 red potatoes (the recipe asks for red ones but I only had Yukon Gold)
Garlic - 2 cloves minced finely
Salt - as per taste
Black Pepper - as per taste
Lemon Juice - as per taste
Dried Oregano - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

  • Dice or slice potatoes to the shape you like. If you like, feel free to leave the skin on (but don't forget to thoroughly wash them)
  • Boil it in salted water just for 6 minutes (don't overcook it, it is very important).
  • Pre-heat oven to 500 degree F
  • Toss some salt and pepper along with 1 tbsp oil in the drained and boiled potatoes.    
  • Spread the mixed potatoes in a baking pan or foil and cook for about 30 minutes, by turning and mixing potatoes every 5-10 minutes
  • Once the potatoes are somewhat golden or brown colored, take them in a plate or bowl and sprinkle oregano, minced garlic and lemon juice. Adjust salt/pepper, if needed.

Enjoy these as a side dish with anything. My son had these with parathas and let me tell you these are now one of his favorites.

Till next post, take care.
