Servings 4


  • 800 g white potatoes (skin on)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven or air fryer to 200 degrees C.
  • Chop the potatoes into small bite sized chunks. The smaller they are, the quicker they will cook.
  • Add the potatoes to a large bowl. Sprinkle the spices over and glug on the oil. With your hands or a spoon, mix it all together throughly so the potatoes are well coated.
  • (For oven method) Spread the coated potatoes onto a metal baking tray (not glass). Bake in oven for 40 minutes (depending on your oven). Take out every 10-15 minutes and shake the pan to prevent the potatoes from sticking.
  • (For airfryer) Toss the potatoes into the airfryer. Set the timer for 20 minutes. Shake halfway to ensure it doesn't stick.
