Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1 kilogram baby potatoes, washed
  2. For marinade :
  3. 2.5 tablespoon olive oil or butter
  4. 1 teaspoon dried basil
  5. 1 teaspoon garlic granuels
  6. 1 teaspoon salt (or according to taste)
  7. 1 teaspoon red chilly flakes
  8. 1/4 teaspoon red chilly powder (optional)
  9. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder
  10. 2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or any other fresh herb


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 C/200 C fan-assisted/425 F/ gas 7.
  2. Place each potato between the two wooden chopsticks or between the handles of two serving spoons (facing downwards) and make slits leaving the base intact. The chopsticks or spoons would help in not cutting entirely through the potato.
  3. Another way of slicing potato is to keep them in a big spoon. Yeah, place the potato just like that and make slits vertically.
  4. Lay all the potato fans in a baking dish. Yup, they look like fan to me or like little hedgehogs with a different patterns.
  5. In a bowl, mix all ingredients for marination except the fresh herb. I like to sprinkle them while serving to bring a fresh flavour to the dish.
  6. Rub this spicy herb oil mix all over the potatoes making sure you rub some inside the slits too. Rub the bottom side as well.
  7. Place you baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. The baking time may vary according to the oven and the size of the potatoes. If the potatoes are too small then they may take less time.
  8. Brush them with the oil remained in the bottom of the dish.
  9. Bake them again for 10 minutes making them crispier and more flavourful.
  10. Take them out of the oven and sprinkle fresh herb. Serve this easy-peasy potato dish that looks nothing less than gorgeous!
