Best Potato Side Dishes: Curry Roasted Potatoes (+More Great Recipes!)
Often times the best potato side dishes are just as delicious as the main course and who doesn't love potatoes? So, we thought we should come up with a list of easy potato side dishes suitable for chicken, pork, beef, fish, or any entrée you can think of!
Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Wash and pat dry the yellow potatoes, then chop them into chunks between 1 ½ - 2 inches. Toss the potatoes with olive oil and seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, and yellow curry powder) directly on the baking sheet, or in a bowl, if preferred.
Set potatoes so that they lay on one of the cut sides, and arrange them in a single layer to help form a crisp exterior. Bake in the middle of your oven's center rack for 25-35 minutes. *I like to bake them for 20-25 minutes, then turn the potatoes to crisp up the other cut side for 5-10 minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven when the potatoes are crisp and done, then serve immediately.
When making this recipe, pay attention to your potatoes - no one likes a burnt potato! To prevent this, make sure your potato chunks are relatively the same size and that you check on them at the 25-minute mark before deciding whether to bake for another 10 minutes or not.
Some people prefer to roast their potatoes directly on the baking sheet, however, I prefer the easy clean-up and find my roasted potatoes turn out delightfully crispy either way.
If you do not have or prefer not to use kitchen tongs to move the potatoes, a thin, firm, and solid spatula is the perfect alternative. This will flip the potatoes easily without disrupting the crust!
Want to make the potatoes a little spicy? Add in ¼ teaspoon of either cayenne or red chili flakes to give them a nice spice pop!
