I LOVE POTATOES…………………
I am sure in one of my earlier posts I probably mentioned that I am in love with them. For me potatoes are what I can not live without. Life would TOTALLY suck if I could not have them. My friends always make fun of me and say that I love potatoes because I’m Kikuyu (a majority tribe in Kenya) well this could be true, seeing as we Kikuyus tend to add potatoes to every dish save for tea 🙂 but Kikuyu or not I love them.
But like any other food they can get monotonous. So I am always looking for new ways to make them and discovering and rediscovering. I was taught the basics of this recipe by my mother. You boil the potatoes to soften them and cook them through. Then you shallow fry them so as to give them a nice crunchiness and beautiful color.
You can try these potatoes by boiling them in your beef or chicken stew then removed them from the stew and shallow fry them. Or you could use a ready made stock of your choice, you can even try and experiment different spices in the water if you’re using water to boil. Try ginger, some onions, masalas etc. You could also use aromat or garlic salt instead of normal salt. Anything could work just depends on your taste. I enjoy them this way, served them for company a couples of times and they are always quite popular so do try them. HAPPY COOKING!!!
