5. Once the excess water is drained, sprinkle the flour generously over the potatoes and toss them to coat evenly. 
6. Heat a pan with butter and oil over low flame. 

7. When the oil heats up add the flour coated potatoes into the pan and spread them so that the potatoes do not over lap and have space to fry comfortably.

8. Roast the potatoes for 35-40 minutes tossing them every 5-7 minutes so that they get roasted uniformly.

Your delicious roasted potatoes are ready for the celebration. 

Chef Tips :

1.Alternatively, you can also bake the potatoes in your oven. 
2.After coating the potatoes with flour, add the oil+ butter into a heated baking pan.
