Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil into a roasting tin and put it in the oven to heat up.

    Scrub the potatoes and chop into bite-sized pieces. Add them to the hot roasting tin. Toss a few times to coat in the oil. Roast in the oven for 10 mins.

Whisk in 300ml boiling water. Gently boil, stirring now and then, for 5-8mins till thickened. Taste the gravy and season.
