Easy Pan Fried Potatoes with Herbs

Easy Pan Fried Potatoes with Herbs


  • 2 medium red onions
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • small fresh ginger root
  • 1 fresh turmeric
  • 1 pound red-skinned potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon oregano or dry herbs of choice
  • dust of chili (optional)
  • some thyme or fresh herbs of your choice


  • Clean and tap dry the potatoes (or clean them in advance) Slice them. Do not peel them.
    Peel and dice the red onions and place them in a heating skillet at high-medium heat
    Add oil to the onions, stir and cover to cook for about 3 minutes stirring often
    Meanwhile, using a vegetable grater, grate the garlic, turmeric, and ginger.
    Bring the sliced potatoes, spread them well, and sprinkle with salt. Add oregano, ginger, garlic, & turmeric. Cover to cook for about 5mins
    Using a large spatula gently flip the cooking potatoes to cook the other side. Cover to cook for about 3 minutes
    Check if the potatoes are cooked by tasting one.
    If you like spicy food, sprinkle with chili, I like using cayenne.
  • When potatoes are cooked, cut off heat and add fresh herbs of your choice. In this recipe I used thyme. Cover to let the potatoes cool and to infuse the fragrance of the herbs. Serve. We love these pan-fried potatoes with some green salad.
