After the somewhat complicated Sarma recipe, here are a couple of super simple potato dishes.
Oven chips are so easy to make if you have a good powerful oven, a fan oven is best to get chips that are crispy round the edges.
Put a large baking sheet in the oven and set it to warm up at 200 C
Peel your potatoes and cut them into whatever chip shape is your preference.
Put them in a bowl with a pinch of salt and just enough olive oil the coat the chips.
Spread your chips out on the preheated tray, they do better if they are not too crowded and put in the oven for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel and slice a clove of garlic, and slice up some mushrooms. It’s more tasty if you have more than one type of mushroom, I used shiitake and oyster.
After the chips have had their 20 minutes of cooking, take the tray out of the oven and with a spatula turn them over. Strew over them the mushrooms and garlic, then put the tray back in the oven for another 20 minutes by which time everything should be brown and crispy and gorgeous.
Serving this with a poached egg on top is lovely.
