    Goldcrest's Note:

    I found this recipe in an issue of the Safeway Magazine and it to suit what I had at had and my taste (I love really spicy stuff). They are HOT so the cooling dip helps. The recipe makes four servings if you are serving it as a side dish, 2, as a snack or 1, as a main meal (as it did me).

    Units: US | Metric

    For the dip

    • 125 ml natural yoghurt
    • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped


    1. 1
      Pour two-thirds of the oil (in this case 2 tbsps) into a baking tray and place in the oven at 220°C (425°F) for the whole time you prepare the potatoes.
    2. 2
      Cut each potato into 8 wedges, lengthwise.
    3. 3
      Mix together the seasonings with the rest of the oil in a large bowl (to accomodate several wedges at once).
    4. 4
      Toss the wedges in the mixture so that each wedge is lightly coated with the spices.
    5. 5
      Take the tray with the hot oil out of the oven and place the wedges onto it- they should be touching each other but need not be spread out either.
    6. 6
      Return to the oven to roast for 30-35 mins or until crisp on the exterior and tender inside.
    7. 7
      Place the ingredients for the dip in a bowl and mix well together.
    8. 8
      Serve wedges hot with dip.

      We like our food spicy too but, like Shuzbud, we cut the cayenne down to 1 tsp. We used hot chili powder (next time I might use paprika instead), added 3/4 tsp of onion powder and mixed the potato & spices in a freezer bag to make prep easier/ avoid dirty dishes. The yogurt sauce we made with our own mint & was deeelicious! Thanks for sharing, Goldcrest. :)

      Wow are these spicy! I cut the cayenne down to 1tsp as I tend to find very spicy food too strong. The dip cooled the spiciness nicely though. Due to my oven not cooking very evenly I baked mine at 150 degrees C for close to an hour. A very enjoyable side dish full of flavour and quick to prepare!
