Russet Potatoes - 2 large ones (or any potato variety)
Salt to taste
Spices (I used coriander powder, chilli powder and cumin powder) - 1 teaspoon each
Oil - 2 tablespoons
Wash the potato. I left the skin on. You can peel it if you wish. Slice them into wedges of about half inch thick. Take care that they are about the same thickness so that they get baked evenly.
Bring a big pot of water to a boil and drop the sliced potatoes for about 4 minutes. They should be half-cooked. Remove them and pat dry with a paper towel.
In a bowl mix together the salt, oil and spices. Coat the potatoes evenly with the spice mixture by rolling them around with your hands.
Preheat oven to 450 degree F.
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and spread the potatoes evenly in a single layer.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and toss and turn the potatoes. Bake for another 10 minutes, until you see the potatoes beginning to brown.
Serve warm with ketchup!
