This middle eastern dish can be eaten as an appetizer or a side dish. It Is usually made hot with cayenne pepper that’s why it is called Batata Harra ( hot potatoes), But since my son who is 2 years old is going to eat from it, I skipped the Cayenne pepper and served it with hot sauce on the side.
1 large Idaho potato ( about 1LB)
3/4 to 1 cup Chopped cilantro
7-8 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tbs vegetable oil
plus vegetable oil for frying potatoes
Peel Potato and cut into i inch cubes.
Heat oil to 350 degrees and deep fry potatoes.
While potatoes are frying, Heat 2 tbs of vegetable oil in skillet over medium heat, saute garlic for 1/2 min and then add chopped cilantro and saute for another 1/2 minute until it wilts.
When potatoes are done,Drain from oil and put in the the skillet with garlic and cilantro, add the salt and spices and mix until well combined.
