Number of Servings: 4


    1 kg charlotte potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp sunflower oil
    7 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
    1 tsp pul biber (Turkish flaked chilli) or tsp another flaked chilli
    2 red peppers, cut into 2cm dice
    30g chopped coriander
    Grated zest of 1 lemon, plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
    Maldon sea salt and black pepper


Heat the oven to 240C/465F/gas mark 9. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil, throw in the potatoes and cook for three minutes. Drain and leave in a colander until completely dry.

Mix the potatoes with the oils, two teaspoons of salt and some black pepper, and spread on a medium roasting tray lined with tin foil; the potatoes should fit in snugly in one layer. Put them in the oven to roast and, after 10 minutes, stir in the garlic, pul biber, red pepper and half of the coriander. Return to the oven and roast for a further 25-30 minutes, until the potatoes are nicely coloured and completely tender. Stir once halfway through the cooking.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the lemon zest and juice, taste and add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve warm or at room temperature, stirring in the remaining coriander at the last minute.
