Chili Roast Potatoes

  • 1 pound small new potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil

Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes. Pour a sufficient amount of oil into a shallow roasting pan to coat the base. Heat the oil in a preheated oven at 400°F for 10 minutes. Add the potatoes to the pan and brush them with the hot oil. In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, caraway seeds, and salt. Sprinkle the mixture over the potatoes, turning to coat. Add the remaining oil to the pan and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. Using a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes from the oil, and transfer to a warm serving dish. Sprinkle the chopped basil over the top and serve immediately.
