It has been a while since I posted some food and yes, it is another potato dish. They are still a favorite. I just love potatoes 🙂
We do not dine out a lot but when we do, Mambo Italia pops up frequently. What’s not to love about their food? One of their options for sides are potatoes roasted with sage and garlic. Yum! Not only are their portions large, their food is down right delicious and filling.
Here is my attempt to recreate the potatoes:-
Oven Roasted Potatoes with Sage and Garlic.
- 5 large potatoes
- I tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp dried sage
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp turmeric
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Peel and cut the potatoes into thick slices or wedges if you wish.
- Boil the potatoes in salted water, together with the garlic and turmeric.
- Boil for 8-10 minutes until almost but not quite cooked.
- Drain and cool
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius,
- In a bowl, mix the olive oil, paprika and thyme.
- Add the cooled potatoes and mix well, then arrange on a baking tray.
- Bake for about 20 minutes.
As the mutton was quite fatty, I boiled it with 2 chopped red onions, I tbsp of ginger- garlic paste, 1 tbsp of chopped coriander (include the stalks), 1 chopped tomato, salt and pepper to taste. You can add 1 tbsp of tomato paste to thicken a bit and add colour to the stew. Let it boil with two cups of water until thickened and reduced to your liking. The mutton was about 400g. This was my version of the famous “tumbukiza” where meat is boiled with all other ingredients you want in there and served hot and saucy.
The stir fried vegetables were carrots, courgette and green pepper (capsicum or hoho as we call it here) sliced into strips. I added a bit of soy sauce and honey to add flavour and a glossy finish.
Below is another potato dish I made weeks ago, only this time the I used mixed herbs, onion and garlic, and the side was some deep fried fish which I made a tomato based sauce for.
This was also very delicious and filling.
Aren’t potatoes bae?
PS: I do make other healthier *cough cough* dishes, keep it locked for the recipes.
