    Batata Harra - Lebanese Spicy Potatoes.

    Being Lebanese I quite like these as a side dish. They're quite light and refreshing, especially compared to heathen Western potato dishes, such as potato au gratin (Potato Au Gratin.).

    Some use capsicum, do that in our house and you'll be strung up and gang-raped in the name of Allah.

    We use:

    3 potatoes, cubed.
    1 onion.
    2 minced cloves of garlic.
    3 tbsp Cold pressed virgin olive oil.
    1/2 tbsp lime juice.
    Chopped cilantro or coriander (I use coriander).

    A spice mix comprising of:

    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp chilli powder
    1/4 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp salt

    Basic ingredients plus my side of tomato, onion, coriander with lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.



    Also to be used on the chicken kebab.



    Par boil (lightly) your potatoes and then fry.



    It's important to almost have them fully done before you begin adding the rest.

    First your spices, then onions, then coriander, then just as she's done, squirt on some lime juice.



    Onto the table, then drizzle in olive oil.



    I quite like taking food photos. Wonder if there's any courses available in BKK to study.



    My favourite beer of the moment.



    I like how the ice kinda looks x-ray'd when photographed in Weizen beer.

    Krombacker Weizen is quite a fruity wheat beer and accompanies it well.

    Chicken kebab as done by Satonic last week. Cheers mate!



    Adding the garlic Greek yogurt is the best bit.





    Allahu Akbar Mutthafokers.

    Looks yummy. Lebanese food a fav of mine. Must try cooking some myself. Save me spending all my hard earned cash at the Beirut Restaurant.

    All I need now is to find a goat in Isaan to make some cheese

    I used to live in their Silom branch.

    Then when I moved out of Silom I had it delivered by Chefsxp every night.

    I now unfortunately live outside of their delivery zone.

    Yeah, but seeing as you're a fan of 7/11's fine range of cuisine, that's not saying much.

    Looks great Glad you enjoyed the kebab too.

    I think I'll give that a go tonight, I just got some nice spuds and was planning just to make a potato salad but this looks so much better.

    beirut is pretty good, but i'd recommend that you try nadimos (if you haven't already). the price is comparable to beirut, but i think the food tastes better.

    I am addicted to that place. I went to the one in Ploenchit Center last week and had lunch with a friend and his wife and kids. They ordered so much food that it took two tables. I love their hummus with shwarma chicken.

    The OP is great. I am going to try to make those potatoes this weekend.

    for shawarma and humus there are also some israeli restuarants close to khao san...

    with each dish you can chose between lamb, beef and chicken...

    its awesome, actually... enough food, very very tasty and something between 120 to 150 baht or so (dependend on meat)...

    its "shoshanas" ...

    Damn you Sir, Damn you I say!!
    I thought I had gotten Lebanese food and especially Batata Harra right out of my system
    and then you,Sir, come along with your.....your recipe's and your gorgeous photos
    and your vivid descriptions and I find I'm right back in the days of my mis-spent and ,may I say, well spent youth.
    Ahhh the memories......
    Damn you Sir...............
