Boiled or fried potatoes? Don’t hurry to answer. French fries are without second thoughts much more delicious… there is no reason to compare them, but what about all these fats and calories? (I am not sure if it is allowed to speak about calories and health issues in a food blog.) On the other hand   those who live a healthier lifestyle will defend boiled potatoes. This meal tastes like French fries but without so many calories since boiled potatoes don't need so much oil for frying.

Try to serve it with this quick sauce! 


For potatoes

Some small-medium potatoes (about 1 kg.)
1 tbsp. mustard
Oil for frying
A pinch of pepper
A pinch of oregano
1 tsp. mild paprika

For sauce

1 strained Greek yogurt (250 gr.)
2 tbsps. mustard
1 tbsp. olive oil
A pinch of pepper
A pinch of salt   


Peel potatoes and then boiled them in slightly salted water till you can easy poke into but they are still firm. Drain the water. When they are cold enough cut it in large chunks. Heat a frying pan and pour some tablespoons oil as to cover the bottom of the pan. When it heats quite add the potatoes. After a couple of minutes mix the oregano, the mustard and the paprika, season with salt and pepper and stir occasionally. Cook till they are all golden and crispy.
For the sauce just mix all the ingredients together thoroughly till your sauce seems homogeneous.
Hope you enjoy it!
