Two Potato Shake

This time of year there are fantastic Sweet Potatoes and Potatoes available. This is basically a stir-fry potato dish; easy to prepare, cook and a real winner.

For 4 People, as a side dish you will need:

250g of small potatoes (scrub well; if potatoes are too large just dice them into large chunks).
250g of Sweet Potato (scrub well and dice into large chunks)
10 whole small shallots peeled – cut in halves or quarters if large.
6 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
1 red Sandia Chilli, deseeded and sliced (or 1 red capsicum)
2 Bay leaves
Several sprigs of Fresh Thyme.
Freshly Ground Pepper
Olive oil


Heat up in a large frypan about 2/3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
Toss in all the ingredients and turn them well through the oil.

Turn the heat down to the lowest possible, cover, and cook for up to 30minutes depending on the size of the diced vegetables.

Check them frequently and shake them in the pan.
Do not overcook; they need to be crisp and golden.
