It is not actually fried in the sense of it but just a little bit to give it that yamarita look (I’m sure you know what it is). So, rather that fried potato, why don’t we call it ‘Potarita’ 🙂
These fried potato chunks are simple to make and perfectly makes a good meal for all ages…yes, from a finger food for babies and toddlers to a meal for school kids and adults. Make it a lunch or dinner and even add it to the lunchbox with your choice of stew anytime.
Fried Potato ‘Potarita’ Chunks
- 2-4 fresh Irish Potatoes
- 1-2 eggs
- Beans flour (optional but good for a little protein boost…with the egg)
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 2 tsp thyme
- Salt to taste
- Vegetable oil (for deep frying)
- Peel, wash and cut potatoes into chunks.
- Boil in salted water with curry powder for about 15-20 minutes. This depends on the size of your chunks but potatoes should be almost done but still firm. Drain the water and return the potatoes in the pot.
- Sprinkle thyme and beans flour over the potatoes, then cover and shake the pot vigorously. This gives the potato chunks some crumbly rather than smooth surface. Leave to cool before next step.
- Heat oil in a pot or fryer, also break eggs into a bowl and whisk well.
- Once oil is hot, dip potato chunks into egg and fry till golden brown.
