Lebanon - Batata Harra

L is for Lebanon. In February, 2012 I made Kibbeh which was my first taste of Lebanese food. It's meat and onion stuffed inside more meat and onion. Unusual but tasty nonetheless.

This time I'm making Batata Harra, a fried potato dish that looks simple and delicious.


500g potatoes
1 bunch coriander
3 cloves garlic
1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Peel and cube the potatoes giving them a rinse under the tap when they're ready.

Saute them in some oil.

Keep going until the potatoes have changed colour and are starting to soften.

Now chop up the coriander and garlic.

Add them to the pan along with the salt, paprika and the juice from the half lemon.

Stir well and saute for another few minutes.

This dish was delicious and fresh tasting. The lemon goes really well with the coriander with the paprika giving a nice spice to the overall flavour. JD and I really enjoyed these potatoes. It's a simple enough recipe that you can make it often to accompany all sorts of foods. Lovely!
