To make the potatoes, you’ll need some potatoes, paprika, cumin, garlic cloves, chilli and sea salt.

Then, all you need to do is par-boil your potatoes, mix up the marinade and give your potatoes a ‘bath in that gorgeous sauce’.

‘The magic lies in smashing them down with a glass and brushing on all that extra flavour from the marinade,’ Aayeh said.

‘Then, just pop them in the oven until they are nice and golden and you hear that perfect sizzle.’

Aayeh added: ‘Serve and enjoy a little slice of heaven.’

Some asked how you can ensure your potatoes turn out crispy every time, as theirs are always failing:

‘Make sure to use small potatoes and be generous with the oil,’ Aayeh said.

‘You also need to leave them in for long enough – between 45 and 60 minutes.’
