Oven roasted potatoes coated with cous cous

Who doesn't love potatoes? There is nothing better than roast potato which are crispy and the golden outside and soft and fluffy inside. Easy to make and also inexpensive.

You will need:-

  • 4-5 Potatoes peeled and cut into wedges 
  • 5-6 tbsp oil(i used chilli-garlic flavoured oil)
  • Mix dry herbs
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp of couscous

Boil the potatoes in salted water about 10-12 minutes.

Preheat oven to Gas mark 6.  In a baking tray pour the oil and leave it in an oven for 5 minutes. 

Add potatoes mix well and now add couscous and dry herbs, make sure potatoes get well coated and roast till golden.

Great with any spicy sauce or with your veg bake.
