Roasted Potatoes with Garlic and Butter


Which is my favorite carb? Rice or potatoes? It's hard to choose as I love them both. The best is to enjoy them together when I eat rice with chicken curry and potatoes. Bliss, I tell you!


But if there is a nice plump roasted chicken on the table, I want roasted potatoes. Somehow a roasted chicken without roasted potatoes seems so incomplete.


When I roasted some potatoes for the Christmas eve party, it was the last dish on my list and I was really rushing it. I was beating the clock as it was an hour before dinner and we had to drive to the hostess' residence.

I was not too happy with the outcome and when I roasted a whole chicken for myself, I simply had to roast another batch of potatoes.


The way that I do it, I steam the potatoes first for about 20 minutes. When they are cool enough to handle, they are cut into two and tossed with butter, olive oil, crushed garlic, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Then into the oven to roast until browned on the edges. Easy, eh?


I had leftovers which I stored in the fridge and I happily ate them with another meal.

  3. You and I, we both love the same carbs! O_o Roasted chicken + roasted potatoes and rice + curry chicken with potatoes = dynamite pairing...haha! :D You steam the potatoes for 20 mins, I parboil them for 10. I've never made roasted potatoes with skins on though, that's because I buy those el cheapo potatoes from the market. I see you used chat potatoes from the supermarkets, right? ;) Must get me some of those for my next roasted potatoes.

    1. Yes, we do! I like using chat potatoes due to their shape and size though Russet taste better and is creamier.
