To do them at home you have to follow the following steps.
Using waxy potatoes
The first thing to do is choose the product well. In this case, waxy potatoes are needed. When you put them in the oven, they are tender on the inside and crisp on the outside, and they keep their shape when boiled. They are usually round, although there are also elongated varieties, and they are produced mainly in the Mediterranean.
Put them in hot water (already chopped) before it starts to boil
This prevents them from softening on the outside before they’re cooked through and helps them cook evenly.
Use pure salt (no additives)
Add a large amount of pure salt to the water so that the potatoes absorb the flavor while they cook. The fact that the water is very salty does not imply that at mealtime you will consume that amount of salt.
Crush them with a wooden spoon
Once they have finished boiling and are tender, you have to drain them until they are very dry. Then crush them with a wooden spoon so that they are squeezed well and the exposure to the heat of the oven is greater.
Spray them with oil
Then you have to place them on the oven tray and drizzle with virgin olive oil. This requirement is not essential but it helps them to have a more golden finish.
Add herbs and seasonings
The combination of rosemary, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, oregano, thyme and a little salt achieve a perfect flavor.
Put them in the oven
Leave them at 230 degrees until they start to brown. When they’re almost done, turn it off and leave it inside for 10 more minutes for a crispier finish.
