SMOKY SPICE RUB              

  • 1 tbs ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground cumin

2 Meanwhile, for the smoky spice rub, combine the coriander, cumin, paprika and chilli flakes in a small dry frying pan. Place over medium heat, cook, shaking pan 5 minutes or until spices are hot and fragrant. Remove spices to a bowl, cool. Stir in the cinnamon, salt, brown sugar and thyme.

3 Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Put the potatoes in a roasting pan. Crush the kipflers slightly with a fork. Drizzle over the oil, sprinkle with 3 teaspoons of the spice mixture. Shake the pan to coat all the potatoes. Roast 30 minutes or until golden and crisp. Serve sprinkled with extra spice mixture and extra thyme.
