Sautéed Potatoes

Sautéed potatoes with a spice mix.

Potatoes have been our staple food for years during childhood time because they are easy to keep and more important extremely yummy when well cooked. This crispy sautéed potato is always on our dinner table around the year. Besides, it is a perfect side dish can be prepared while you are cooking other dishes. That’s the reason why I love to cook it frequently.

You can use small potatoes or large waxy potatoes for this recipe. The high starch content can help to from an extra crispy shell after sautéing and that’s the best part of this dish.

Cook’s Note

If you want to get even crispier sautéed potatoes, here are 2 tips.

  1. Slightly overcook the potatoes until the edges become easy to break and rough. If I cook the potatoes 7 minutes, it gets very soft inside and a slightly sticky but still crispy shell.
  2. Mix around 1 tablespoon of oil with cooked potato cubes and set aside for a while. The oil and starch mixture help to get extra crispy shell.

Dried spice mix are used in this recipe in order to keep the crispy texture.

Ingredients

  • 300g waxy potatoes
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 coriander, for garnishing
  • 3 tbsp. cooking oil , divided

Spice mix

  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. ground Sichuan peppercorn

While preparing the potatoes, heat around 1 teaspoon of salt over slow fire for 1 minute or until slightly browned. Add 1 tablespoon of ground Sichuan peppercorn and 1 tablespoon of ground cumin. Heat over slowest fire until aromatic. Transfer out to cool down.
