    Serves: 6 

    • 1 kg (5 or 6 medium sized) potatoes, peeled but kept whole
    • 2 teaspoons Herbie's Spices Ras el Hanout, or more to taste
    • pinch salt to taste
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Cook the whole potatoes until done but not too soft - about 20 minutes - then drain and cool.
    2. Coarsely grate the cooked potatoes into a bowl and gently sprinkle the spice mix and salt through as you grate.
    3. Heat the butter and oil in a heavy-based pan and let the foam subside.
    4. Place the potato mix into the pan, either in several fritter-sized cakes or as one large cake, being careful not to press down too hard.
    5. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, until the underside has browned. Gently turn the cake or cakes over, and cook a further 5-6 minutes until they are cooked through and browned.
    6. Remove the pan from the heat and slide the potato cake/s onto a warmed serving dish.
    7. Cut into pie-wedges and serve with salad.

    Spice Note

    Salt is added to this recipe as there is no salt in the Herbie's Spices version of Ras el Hanout. If you use a different spice mix, you may not need to add salt if there is salt in the spice mix.

    Made one large one. This is so easy and a nice halfway between hash browns and chips.  -  15 Jul 2010
