  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the potatoes in a pan of water, cover and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until just tender. Drain in a colander and leave to steam-dry.
  2. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut into quarters. Return to the colander and shake to ruffle them up slightly. Pour the olive oil into a roasting tin. Heat in the oven for 2 mins, then carefully add the potatoes and toss to coat in the oil. Spread out evenly and roast for 30-35 mins, turning halfway, until golden and crispy.
  3. Meanwhile, mix half the garlic into the yogurt and season. Pour the chilli oil into a small frying pan and place over a low heat. Add the remaining garlic and the chilli flakes, then fry gently for 1-2 mins until the garlic has softened.
  4. Spoon the yogurt onto a serving plate, spreading it out to the edges. Remove the potatoes from the roasting tin with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towel. Place the potatoes on top of the yogurt and drizzle all over with the chilli oil. Sprinkle with the lime zest, scatter over the coriander and spring onions, and serve with lime wedges on the side.
