Prepare the potatoes


Fill a large stockpot with water and add salt to taste. Bring it to a boil. Add the potatoes to the water and boil for about 15 minutes.

Prepare the dressing


Meanwhile, heat oil in another large pot over medium heat. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and spices.  Add the vinegar and water and stir to combine.

put it all together


When the potato slices are enough to easily pierce with a fork, but not falling apart, drain them and immediately add to the pot with the vinegar mixture.  Toss to coat.

Let the flavors combine


Remove the pot from heat and cover it for about 5 minutes or so. This will allow the flavors of the dressing to permeate the potatoes.
