Ingredients

  • 600 gr Potatoes

For the double paprika potatoes:

  • 10 gr Extra virgin olive oil
  • half a teaspoon Sweet paprika
  • half a teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • a small pinch Garlic powder

For the chili garlic potatoes:

  • 10 gr Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili flakes or powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder

For the dill and mustard potatoes:

  • half a teaspoon Dill powder
  • one teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • half a teaspoon Honey

To boil the potatoes:

  • 2 liters Water
  • 25 gr Salt
  • 4 gr Baking soda

Instructions

  • If you want to eat your potatoes with their skin on, then rinse and scrub them well. After that, cut into large chunks.
  • Bring up to a boil a large pot with 2 liters of water. Add salt and baking soda, then throw the potatoes in to cook.
  • After 15/20 minutes, pierce them to check if they're ready: if the knife meets some resistance (but not too much!) they're ready.
  • Drain and let them chill into the pot for a minute so the excess steam goes away.
  • Preheat oven to 220° C (430° F).
  • In the meantime heat 10 grams of extra virgin olive oil, throw in the garlic and chili powder and turn off the heat to avoid the garlic to burn. Set aside.
  • Repeat the process with oil + paprika and oil + dill.
  • Divide the potatoes into 3 parts and put them in 3 bowls.
  • Add the infused oil to each, then toss until a sort of mashed potato–like paste has built up on the outside.
  • Add mustard and honey to the oil + dill potatoes and toss again.
  • Spread out potatoes in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes turn the potatoes using a spatula, then bake for 25/30 minutes more until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately! THEY ARE SUPER CRISPY!
