    1. Preheat oven at 220 degrees C.
    2. Add potatoes to saucepan of boiling water and parboil for approximately 5 minutes. Drain.
    3. Wait until slightly cooled then dust the semolina over the potatoes. Put lid on the saucepan and shake until the edges of the potatoes are puffed up; this makes them really crispy.
