Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel turnips and cut them into the shape of french fries.
Place them on a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, coriander and, if using, chili powder. Toss to coat well. Arrange turnip fries flat on the pan.
Roast for about 25 minutes or until turnips are tender.
Serve immediately with catsup or other dipping sauce.
