I had a wonderfully spicy garlic dip at the dusit D2 baraquda
the other day, and then came across this recipe for spicy potatoes. This is
something to ‘spice up’ European dishes, adding a little extra flavor to the
main dish. While you can make spicy chips, they are deep-fried. These are not,
and have more flavor than chips dusted with spice. Preparation should only take
around 15-20 minutes and cooking another 15 minutes, so fits in very well with
cooking European steak dishes.
Wash and peel the potatoes and cut into chip size.
In a heavy pan heat the oil over medium heat and add
peppercorns and cumin, then garlic until it is slightly
browned. Remove from the heat and add chilli powder and
Now add the potatoes and return the pan to medium heat.
Sprinkle the salt over the potatoes, stir and mix and then
cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir again and continue
cooking until the potatoes are browned.
Serve with the main dish. Great with steak and blue cheese.
