  • 500 gram baby potato or 250 gram medium size potato
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 6 - 8 garlic cloves, roughly smashed
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 5-6 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 - 3 sprig of sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes


  • To prepare the garlic and Herb Roasted Potato, wash the potato in water to get rid of dirt. Wipe them with a kitchen towel. If your prefer, peel the skin. I have used baby potato but you can use regular potato as well for the recipe. Cut the regular size potato into equal size wedges.
  • Now arrange the potato in a microwave safe plate and cook in the microwave for 5 - 10 minutes. This helps potato to absorb the flavor of herbs and potato nicely.
  • Transfer potato in a large mixing bowl and add olive oil, herbs, salt, black pepper, and cloves of garlic. Toss the potato in the seasoning mix to evenly coat each piece with the herbs and spices.
  • Let the potato sit in the seasoning mix for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat your oven at 180 degrees Celcius for 10 minutes.
  • Roast the potato in the oven till cooked through and the outer layer turns crisp. This usually takes 50 - 60 minutes, after an interval of 30 minutes, turn the tray for even roasting of the potatoes.
  • Serve Garlic Roasted Potato immediately.



  • You can use any combination of fresh and dry herbs of your choice. 
  • You can also add butter and cheese to make the potatoes more delicious. 
  • The roasting time may vary depending on the potatoes' variety and the oven's size. Mine is a 52 - litre OTG. 
  • You can air-fry them at 180 degrees Celcius pre-heated air fryer for 20 to 30 minutes. 
  • Any variety of potatoes works for this recipe. Removing the skin of potatoes is a matter of personal choice.
