Baked potatoes with Ras El Hanout, Moroccon spice infused Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes were in my bucket list and it was fired more when i tasted it at our bloggers meet here at Anamika’s house. She had made it so beautifully, picture perfect, delicious balance of flavors and served it with a garlic yogurt dip(hope I m correct ). 
When we asked for the recipe she said that potatoes were parboiled and baked. Parboiled potatoes when baked gives a perfect crisp outer and a soft inside. When mixed with spices, they create amazing flavors ! 

When I made ras el hanout, the first recipe I wanted to make was this baked potatoes! Oh man, what a dish! The flavor of the spice amplifies the taste and it makes a great side on your party table.

I m not exaggerating about the taste, my hubby has asked me to make this again so he can relish it better. Want to make an impression in your next party, try these yumm potatoes!
