Turmeric roast potatoes

Roasting potatoes is an easy affair? Or is it? Michael Diacono gives us a few little tricks that will get everyone coming back for seconds. 

Turmeric roast potatoes


  • 500g potatoes
  • 2 tbsp duck fat
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp turmeric


  1. Peel the potatoes and par-boil them until tender on the outside but still firm in the centre.
  2. Render the duck fat in a small saucepan and add to a roasting dish and place in the oven at 190°C.
  3. Season the flour with salt and turmeric.
  4. Take the potatoes out of the water and while they are still hot dredge them in the flour and place them in a single layer in the hot duck fat in the roasting tin. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
  5. Roast for 30 mins, turning over a few times.
