Baked Herby Potato Wedges | Quick Party Snacks

I am yet to hear of any kid (or adult) who can say no to French Fries or Potato Wedges - be it a birthday or a get together, these wedges (or fries) get the conversation going... Made at home, and baked too, with just a dash of spice and herb, these are healthy munches one cannot say no to.. Try it out, and enjoy ! Sending this to  PJ who's hosting Baked Treats - Kids Delight.    Use mature potatoes (preferably Russet potatoes with a deep brown skin with no green spots) for best results. I have used Olive oil for this, but you may substitute with whatever oil you choose from or even use flavoured oil like chilly oil etc 

Prep time : 15 mins | Bake time : 12 - 14 mins | 
Serves : As many people can manage to get their hands on this first ;-))

Ingredients:

  • Potatoes - approx 3/4 kg (about 3 - 4 large ones)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Dry herb mix - 1/2 tsp each of paprika, basil, Oregano, rosemary
  • Dry Chilli flakes - 1/2 TBSP (adjust spice)
  • Olive Oil - 3 TBSP + for greasing the baking tray
  • Crushed black pepper-  1/2 tsp

Method:
Wash and scrub the potatoes to remove all the dirt. 
Make pin pricks all over the skin and boil in slightly salted water for 3-5 mins. Drain.
Wipe with a clean n dry kitchen towel.
With the skin on, cut out thickish, even sized wedges with a sharp knife.
In a large bowl, add 3 TBSP of Olive oil, salt and dry herbs
Preheat oven to 160 deg C. Line a baking tray and slightly grease it.
Toss the potatoes into the oil-herb-salt mixture and give it a vigorous shake. Leave for 5-6 mins
Arrange the wedges without overlapping each other on a greased tray. Sprinkle dry chilli flakes and crushed black pepper on it
Bake for 12- 14 mins, turning them once over, till the skin turns golden brown and crisp.
Serve hot with ketchup.
