Potatoes are bae. Love them in all their forms. Roasted, boiled, fried, mashed…..YUM!
We are in the midst of drought and vegetable prices have skyrocketed as supply is less than demand.
Luckily, H travelled to an area known for fluffy potatoes and came back with some plus fresh juicy carrots the kids and I keep snacking on.
I made potato bhajias the other night, with salad and panfried tilapia.
The bhajias were literally eaten off as I cooked by the kids, by the time I plated my portion, they were the few remaining, but hey, as long as we were all fed, it was fine.
For the potatoes, I just sliced them thin and dunked them in a thickish batter of gram flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper and finely chopped coriander.
Do not overcrowd in the pan as you fry so they can get crispy and not clump together.
The salad was a basic kachumbari of onion, tomato, salt and pepper, squeeze of lemon and a bit of chopped coriander leaves, I just added some grated carrots as these carrots are so sweet and juicy, I had to add them. J
The fish-fresh Tilapia was marinated in lemon juice, seasalt and black pepper, then pan fried. Do not forget to squeeze some lemon just before serving.
A delicious and filling meal.
