A Simple Potato Recipe Posted by on Jul 21, 2014 in Arabic Language, Culture, Vocabulary

This is one of my favourite potato recipes. It is very simple, quick and easy.



Potatoes (بطاطس)

Garlic (ثوم)

Oil (زيت)

Salt and pepper (ملح وفلفل)



Peel the potatoes and cut them in thick fingers.

Crush the garlic, salt and pepper in mortar or food processor or anyway you like.

Mix the potatoes, garlic, salt and pepper together in an oven tray.

Add a little bit of water and oil.

Cook in the oven until ready.


In order to save energy, I usually cook the mixture a little bit on the hob, then finish its cooking in the oven.

Although this is a very simple and easy recipe, it is tasty and full of flavour. It is  a nice change from fries!

I usually prepare it in this way and serve it with meatballs or steak!

    Hi! I love potatoes also like this but I never add water because I like them to be crispy 😉 I also add rosemary because I’m Italian and we use it very often. I put the potatoes on a baking sheet so I can make more. Sometimes I add also onions cut in half with some oil to the potatoes. They are also very good. 🙂
