This is one of my favorite ways to roast potatoes. There subtle flavor slowly builds to pack quite a punch of yumminess. The first time I ever did this I thought I was being all creative and inventive, only to find out how traditional the dish really is. However, in Lebanese cooking-the potatoes are traditionally pan fried not roasted. I prefer roasting to help impact flavor and have less oil.

6-8 medium red potatoes, diced into bite size pieces
