Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow it to cool for 5-6 minutes.
Mix the corn flour, red chilli powder, garlic powder, onion powder and salt (adjust) in a bowl.
Once the excess water is drained, sprinkle the flour generously over the potatoes and toss them to coat evenly.
Heat a pan with butter and oil over low flame.
When the oil heats up add the flour coated potatoes into the pan and spread them so that the potatoes do not overlap and have space to fry comfortably.
Roast the potatoes for 35-40 minutes tossing them every 5-7 minutes so that they get roasted uniformly.
Your delicious Perfect Christmas Roast Potatoes are ready for the celebration.
Alternatively, you can also bake the potatoes in your oven. After coating the potatoes with flour, add the oil+ butter into a heated baking pan. Spread the potatoes in the pan and bake the potatoes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 45 minutes, stopping every 10 minutes to toss them so that they roast uniformly.
