It is best to use new potatoes that can be halved or even left whole if they are small enough. When fried in this manner they become almost just a crisp shell and are great with the oregano.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg(2 lb 4 oz) potatoes, peeled and halved (or cut into large chunks)
  • olive

Method

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the potatoes. Boil for about 25 minutes until they are quite soft but not falling apart. Lift them out with a slotted spoon and put them in a large bowl (the heat will steam the excess water away). Use a skewer to poke almost right through each piece in a couple of places so that they fry right through.

In a wide pan, heat enough oil
