  • 500 grams of potatoes Potatoes the solid foundation of our culinary creation, give our dish a cozy, substantial quality. Cut thinly to ensure even cooking, these potatoes take a magical trip in the oven, coming out with a crunchy golden skin that belies a creamy, sensitive core. It's a seductive play of textures that begs to be enjoyed with every bite.
  • Onions 2–3: Carefully sliced into half rings, onions add a subtle sweetness and aromatic richness that harmonizes perfectly with the potatoes. These onions experience a fascinating caramelization process while interacting with the potatoes in the oven, adding a depth and nuance to the meal that takes its flavor profile to new heights.
  • Salt 2 tsp: The foundation of seasoning, salt plays an essential function in bringing out the tastes of our ingredients naturally, guaranteeing that every component of our potato and onion wonders has a mouthwatering flavor that clings to the tongue. Salt, in its perfect proportions, turns our food into a gourmet experience that tantalises the senses.

With each bite, the flavor profile is enhanced by the subtle depth of ground pepper, which melds in perfect harmony with the other ingredients to create a symphony of flavors that is captivating.
  • Olive Oil 2–3 tablespoons: Acting as the culinary conductor, olive oil gives our dish a subtle taste and fragrant base, allowing the ingredients to blend harmoniously. When olive oil is liberally drizzled over potatoes and onions, it works as a catalyst in the oven, bringing out the most delicious golden colors and filling our creation with a sensual, enticing perfume.
  • Mustard 3–4 tsp: Adding a sharp bite and tang to our potato and onion treats, mustard gives them a richness and depth. Its astringent overtones cut through the dish's richness, producing a mouthwatering flavor contrast that lingers on the tongue and entices guests to partake in an unmatched culinary adventure.
  • Greek yogurt three to four tablespoons: Our dish's delicious sauce is made with yogurt and mustard, which is masterfully combined to create a velvety smoothness and decadent finish. Yogurt, whether dairy or plant-based, adds a rich, creamy, slightly tart flavor that melds well with the savory undertones of the potatoes and onions, making every bite a sensory extravaganza of flavor.


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This easy step guarantees that our onions and potatoes won't stick to the pan, enabling even cooking and effortless cleanup.
  • Place the onions and the thinly sliced potatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle the mixture evenly with olive oil, making sure that every thin slice gets a good amount of moisture. A light dusting of salt and pepper gives the whole thing body, and a gently toss makes sure the ingredients get into all the nooks and crannies.
  • Gently place the seasoned potatoes and onions in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This design guarantees that every slice gets the chance it deserves to have a crispy, golden surface and a soft, caramelized interior. Place the tray in the oven that has been warmed, and watch the magic happen for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden and the onions are perfectly caramelized.
  • Now that the oven is doing its culinary magic, it's time to make the standout ingredient, the mustard yogurt sauce. Whisk the yogurt and mustard in a small bowl until they combine harmoniously and become velvety. To suit your taste, change the amounts accordingly. You can add more mustard for a spicier kick or use less for a more subdued flavor.
