Baked Rosemary Garlic Potato wedges Recipe
A simple yet perfect recipe for healthy snacking , these baked rosemary potato wedges recipe, are now my go to snack for family and friends most evenings.What can ever be better than homemade potato wedges? Nothin! These are the best .
I always love a side of beautifully flavoured, crispy mouth melting potato wedges with my meals. I don’t mind having homemade baked (not fried) potato wedges as a snack. My daughter too loves the darling spuds cooked in the form of potato wedges , and it is a great source of carbs for kids.
Talking about “beautifully flavoured”, i usually experiment with the flavours i add to the wedges. It can range from just salt and pepper, to garlic flavoured, or curry spiced.
When i was gifted a pack of blend of spices by Spice way UK, i could not think of a more apt recipe, than using their “Ravishing rosemary ” spice to flavour my wedges.They turned out so flavourful, and delectable, that “Ravishing Rosemary Potato wedges” are doing weekly rounds (note “On demand” ) in my menu every week.
Making these simple rosemary potato wedges
Making potato wedges does not require much of an effort. You just need to get the perfect potatoes, coat them in a little oil, and right spices. Set the temperatures right, and let the oven do the rest for you. You can sit back, and relax.
Ensuring the potato wedges are super crispy on outside and soft on the inside-
If possible use red potatoes, russet potatoes, which are really good for making wedges.
Use enough oil to coat the potatoes nicely so that they cook evenly.
After you wash and scrub clean the potatoes, add them to ice cold water for 20-25 minutes. This step is optional, but it does help to make potatoes crispier, and prevents them from sticking. Most of the times when i am in a hurry, i do not do this step.I straightaway wash , rinse , pat dry and rub the spices to coat the potatoes. But if you are looking for really crispy wedges on the outside, then do not omit this step.
Make sure to flip the potatoes halfway, so that both the sides are properly cooked.
Cook these at a high heat so that these are nice and golden on the outside.
Spices to flavour the wedges
I used ravishing rosemary spice, gifted to me by spiceway uk. It had a perfect blend of rosemary, garlic and salt flakes , so i did not add anything else.
You can order these here at spicewayuk website.
Preparing the rosemary garlic salt at home-
If you do not have the spice blend available , you can easily prepare this at home.
Mix dried rosemary herb. Add dried garlic powder (roughly ground dried garlic flakes), and sea salt.And your rosemary garlic salt is ready.
Or you can use freshly chopped rosemary, chopped garlic cloves and sea salt.This would be even much nicer as it has all the fresh ingredients.Rest of the process remains the same.
Alternative Spice blends you can use-
If you are not a fan of Rosemary, you can always use some other spice blends to flavour your potatoes.
The classic blend of salt and pepper is my favourite.
Sometimes i use a mix of Garlic salt, onion salt and chives (dried herbs). That is really flavourful.
If you want intense garlic flavour, add freshly chopped garlic and chilli flakes to the olive oil and rub the potato wedges in the spice rub.
Use curry powder to get that perfect curry flavour to your potatoes, or add dried crushed mint leaves to get a fresh minty flavour and top with a squeeze of lemon.
Lets get them in the oven-
Thoroughly scrub, wash and rinse the potatoes.
Slice them into wedges- Cut the potatoes into halves (lengthwise), and then into 3- 4 slices (depending on the size of potatoes).
Add the potatoes in a bowl full of chilled water for approximately 20-25 minutes.
Take these out of water, and pat dry with a paper towel.
Prepare the spice rub by mixing the Extra virgin olive oil, rice flour and ravishing rosemary spice mix.
Coat the potatoes in the spice rub, and lay down flat in a tray lined with parchment paper.
Put it in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, flipping these half way.
Take these out, rest for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle the rosemary garlic salt, and serve with your favourite sauce , or ketchup.
