  3. Toss the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle to coat with Geeta’s Tandoori Spice Marinade
  4. Spread onto a baking tray and roast for 40 minutes
  5. Add chopped spring onions 5 minutes before the end of roasting.
  6. Meanwhile, mix the lime juice, coriander, and sliced chilli in a serving dish – retain a few slices of coriander and chilli for garnish
  7. Add the potatoes and toss the mixture together and garnish with fresh coriander and chilli slices

How We Enjoy Ours

Delicious straight from the oven or served warm with a salad alfresco. If you’re not catering for vegans, then you can dollop the potatoes with a generous portion of thick, plain yoghurt or, if you are, mix them with some cashew nuts.
