Yoghurt is easily made with a Thermos flask and a thermometer. A tablespoon of yoghurt stirred into a pint of milk that has been brought to blood heat, left overnight in the Thermos, makes perfect yoghurt.


  • 1 lb (450 g) potatoes, cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Boil or steam the cleaned potatoes (peel if old ones are used) until tender. Keep warm while you prepare the rest.

Heat the oil in a wide pan and put in all the spices and the bay leaves. Cook for a few moments and then add the potatoes. Put a lid on the pan and shake it so that the potatoes are covered with the spices. Finally add the yoghurt, season with salt and pepper and serve.
