Potatoes In Many Ways

Ever had a craving for potatoes for close to a week, but have also gotten to a point where fries and mashed potatoes just won’t do it for you? We are here to help you fix that.

There are a gazillion ways in which you can satisfy your craving and not get bored while at it.

From dinner to breakfast, lunch and dinner (again); from salads to roasted potatoes, here are two recipe ideas that you could make with potatoes:

  1. Creamy potato salad


5 to 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks

1 cup Mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. vinegar

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped (optional)


  • Cover potatoes with water in a cooking pot; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.
  • Combine Mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, sugar and pepper in large bowl. Add potatoes, celery, onion and eggs and toss gently. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Serves: 8

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 15 min

2. Rosemary, garlic roasted potatoes      

Ingredients                                                                                                                                                                                  5-6 medium boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges

3 tablespoons olive oil

5 to 6 large rosemary sprigs (about 5 inches long)

4 large garlic cloves, smashed and peeled


  • Preheat oven to 200o C .
  • Toss ingredients with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and drizzle a bit of oil. Spread in 1 layer on hot pan and roast 20 minutes. Loosen potatoes with a metal spatula and turn, arranging pale potatoes around outer edge of pan and golden potatoes in center (for even roasting). Roast 15 minutes, then loosen and turn potatoes over again.
  • Roast until potatoes are golden and cooked through and edges are crisp, about 10 minutes more.
  • Turn them around to get a good coating of oil, sprinkling in the garlic and rosemary as you go.
  • Serve while hot, with dressing or dip of your choice.
