If you do not love potatoes we cannot be friends. There, I said it!
Seriously though, how can one not love this versatile vegetable? Boil it, roast it, fry it, mash it; the possibilities are endless with this starchy fella.
Potatoes are a staple here in our meals as they can be served any time, anyway. One of my favorite snacks to make with them is Maru bhajia (I use this lovely recipe from Fauzia’s kitchen), and packed potatoes also known as “viazi Karai” in Kenya. They are not the healthiest but a great way to indulge your fried food craving when it strikes.
Fun fact: Potatoes are called ‘Irish’ by many in Uganda- it took time for me to get used to it.
Try them and enjoy as you listen to this lovely ode to the wonderful potato. Yes, it’s The potato song. And don’t worry, we can still be friends even if you do not like potatoes 🙂
