Crispy Spicy Baked Potato

Potatoes are most palette friendly food whether its for kids or for adults. I prefer baking potatoes instead of frying them as it more healthy. Addition of cumin gives a wonderful smokey aroma to humble potatoes. They are crunchy from outside and soft inside. A wonderful side dish with baked chicken, steaks or fish.
I like them with skin on as skin is crispier than the flesh and it adds a nice texture contrast as well but you can peel them if desired. 


Baking Potato                            4 cut in chunks (preferably russet)
Salt                                            2/3 tsp or to taste
Cumin powder                           1 tsp
Red chili powder                        1/4 tsp
Black pepper                             1/4 tsp
Olive oil                                     4-5 tbsp


  1. Preheat the oven at 400 for 15-20 mins. 
  2. Put the cubed potatoes on a baking dish. 
  3. Sprinkle all the dry spices and coat potatoes with it on all sides.
  4. Drizzle olive oil on potatoes and mix well.
  5. Arrange potatoes in a single layer and bake for 50-60 mins till crispy golden and fork tender.
