The beautiful thing about the humble potato is that it is probably the most variable of foods ever birthed from up the earth. Here’s how to eat a weeks worth of potatoes without getting bored.
The classic roast is super easy to make and is a great accompaniment to a juicy steak… or just eat it like that.
No matter if you get yours freshly mashed or from the 7-11 machine or from KFC, we like it all.
3. Tu dou si 土豆丝
Literally means potato strips. Have it lightly sautéed with dried chilli and chives.
A bigger version of the potato strip. Just kidding. Nothing beats the classic fry!
For those who like a chunkier version of the fry.
6. Cheesy fries
Up your fry game with a heap full of cheese on top.
7. Criss cross fries
For the times when you want to stuff many fries in your mouth but you also want to do it neatly.
8. Aloo Bhaji
When you really like your potato a little spicy but not too spicy.
Ok, this is kind of cheating because you get to add other things like bacon and chives and cheese in it. The more the merrier! We won’t tell.
10. Potato bird nest
Is it a potato? Is it a nest? No, it’s a potato bird nest.
Just tell the people around you that you are getting your daily dose of vegetables.
12. Saag Aloo
Paneer? Potato? We in.
These bad boys are more than just a sidekick to your McDonald’s breakfast value meal.
Mashed potatoes. Deep fried. Covered with bread crumbs. Need we say more?
Fall in love with this curry (or the person making it), just as Prince Itsarasunthon of Siam, the later King Rama II (1767-1824) did. He even wrote a poem for the lady who is believed to be Princess Bunrot, the later Queen Sri Suriyendra, wife of King Rama II:
“Massaman, a curry made by my beloved, is fragrant of cumin and strong spices.
Any man who has swallowed the curry is bound to long for her.”
16. Sweet potato balls
We know these are technically not potatoes, but just look at how beautiful they are fresh out of the fryer. What donut balls?
17. Dum Aloo
Baby potatoes are cute and are used in the Dum Aloo. Yes, no potato is spared from the cooker.
18. Potato salad
Because even potatoes need friends.
19. Spiral potato skewer
This is the best excuse to eat an entire potato on your own.
Why do normal pancakes when you can load them with potato?
21. And of course, chips
Or crisps, if you prefer to call it that way.
