10 large floury potatoes, eg Agria
2 tbsp flour
Salt and black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 200ºC. Peel potatoes and chop into quarters. Place potatoes in a saucepan with cold water and salt and bring to the boil. Boil for 4 minutes.
2. Drain the potatoes well in a colander and allow all steam and moisture to escape.
3. Return the potatoes to the dry saucepan, cover with a lid and shake the potatoes vigorously several times to roughen edges.
4. Sprinkle over flour then toss potatoes briefly to ensure even coverage of flour.
5. Heat the oil in a large roasting pan in the oven until oil is very hot. Carefully lift the pan from the oven, adding potatoes to the hot oil. Return pan to the oven.
