Notes

Soak the cut potatoes in water for at least 15 minutes to remove the starch. This also helps to ensure that the potatoes do not stick to the baking sheet while cooking. 
Roast at high temperatures to ensure that the potatoes turn brown and crispy. 
Do not overfill the tray with potato wedges, rather spread them into a single layer. Divide them into two trays if required.
Spread the potatoes with enough spacing between them to allow them to cook properly. Too many potatoes in the tray would result in steaming rather than roasting and prevent them from being crispy all over.
Take the baking tray out of the oven halfway through the cooking process., flip the potatoes over and put the tray back in the oven and continue cooking until done. This ensures even roasting and browning on all sides.
