Fabulous Friday Flavour: Sage & Chilli Infused Potatoes

Fridays will now be devoted to featuring a recipe I have either experimented during the week or a shout-out to a fabulous recipe for your gastronomic pleasure. Either way, Fridays at Grubbs ‘n Critters will be about sharing the flavours of the week to enhance your home-cooking repertoire.

With #Blogging 101 coming to a close, I’m responding to this new posting feature assignment with one of my latest creation of fried potatoes infused with some herbs, chilli and spices. I assure you that this is good!

Sage & Chilli Infused Potatoes
Write a review
  1. 4-6 potatoes, peeled and cut up into chunks
  2. 1-2 garlic
  3. 3-4 fresh red chillies
  4. 1 medium sized shallots, peeled and quartered
  5. Half a teaspoon of cumin seeds
  6. 1/4 inch of fresh tumeric root, peeled
  7. 5-6 pieces of fresh sage, roughly chopped up
  8. olive oil
  9. salt to taste
  1. Soak cumin seeds in hot water and set aside for about 2 minutes. Drain.
  2. Roughly pulse chillies, shallots, tumeric and the drained cumin seeds into a blender. The texture should be a little coarse, not pureed.
  3. Press garlic and infuse it in 2-3 tablespoon of olive oil. Add in sage and set aside
  4. Separately fry the potatoes till they get a little golden brown before taking them out of the frying pan and set aside.
  5. Pour the sage and garlic infused olive oil all over the fried potatoes and set aside.
  6. Heat up the frying pan in a little olive oil. When the oil is hot enough, add in the coarsely blended ingredients. Fry till it gets a little dry. Be careful that it doesn’t burn.
  7. Add in the infused potatoes. All of it including the oil into the frying pan and mix them all up for about 5 minutes
  8. Turn off the fire and it is ready to be served.

    Oh man Ann, this sounds amazing! Can I use turmeric powder and dried sage or will that compromise the recipe?

      I think that should be fine, Gen. For tumeric, the powder can be a little over-powering, so you’ll hv to exercise caution when using it or it’ll be too much.

      I find that the dried sage is usually not as flavourful as the fresh ones, so you might want to increase the quantity a little more – how much more, I don’t know :p You’d have to try and tell me what’s a good measure! ;D
