These “Pan fried potatoes” are absolutely addictive! They have all the elements, the taste, the texture and the delicious flavours.
It is not a secret that I love making pasta, on my Instagram you will find me making pastas at least 2-3 times a week. We both love pastas but I have to make something as a side. Quite often it is either garlicky brussel sprouts, or stir fried broccolini. I hardly make potatoes with pasta as I feel it is a double dose of carbs.
A few weeks ago with my pasta I made these delicious Pan fried Potatoes and my husband who is a huge fan of spuds really enjoyed it.
I am zealot when it comes to food, I love healthy food, I seldom do anything fried and I like creating healthy recipes. So to make this dish healthy I added some blanched almonds and I cooked these lovely spuds in my “Golden Ghee”. The flavour was sublime and that almond crunch made it extra special. I reckon ghee or butter cooks the potatoes better than oil, it gives that fatty coating and we all know how much we need that good fat in our diet.
Although I served these Pan fried potatoes with pasta you can also serve them with orzo or with chicken or with fish!
