  1. Put a baking tray on the middle shelf of the oven and preheat it to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the potatoes in a bowl and toss with the oil. Remove the hot tray from the oven and arrange the potatoes in a single layer, cut-side down. Roast for 15 mins until mostly tender and just starting to brown.
  2. Remove the tray from the oven and toss the potatoes with a metal spatula. Add the turmeric, nigella seeds, onion and garlic; mix well.
