This is a quick, weeknight post about one of my favorite quick, weeknight recipes. I created it on the fly one evening while craving something healthy but comforting.
Although really easy to put together with just a handful of ingredients, my Peppered Mushroom-Potato Stir Fry packs a huge flavor wallop, thanks mainly to the ground black pepper.
It's also quite versatile- as most potato dishes are. So here it is: hope you'll try it!
Peppered Mushroom-Potato Stir Fry
2 large potatoes, cut into chunky cubes and then zapped in the microwave for about 5 minutes with a few tablespoons of water so they are tender but just short of well-cooked.
1 cup crimini or button mushrooms, halved or quartered (if very big)
1 red onion, sliced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp canola oil
Salt to taste
Heat the oil in a cast-iron or non-stick skillet.
Stir-fry the onions until they start to brown.
Add the garlic, curry leaves and black pepper and stir for a minute.
Add the mushrooms and stir to coat with the oil and pepper.
Add the drained potatoes. Stir occasionally until the potatoes are golden-brown.
Salt to taste. Serve hot!
I want to take a moment here to thank the lovely Madhuram who gave me the Nice Matters award- my fourth! Thanks, Madhuram, for the thoughtful gesture.
