Spicy Potato Wedges

750 grams potatoes washed (Agria or Red Desiree potatoes)

4 teaspoons vegetable oil like canola

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon chilli powder or ground cayenne

½ teaspoon hot chilli flakes

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon mild paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

Dry the washed potatoes thoroughly. No need to peel. Cut to make about 8 wedges from each potato (depends on how thick your potatoes are). Place the wedges in a large mixing bowl. Mix all the spice powders in a separate small bowl and sprinkle on the wedges tossing them as you go along. Then drizzle the oil and toss to ensure all wedges have a bit of the spice mixture and the oil. Lay them out on a large shallow baking tray. Place on top shelf for 40 minutes turning them once or twice during cooking. Serve hot.
