Two ways to cook potatoes

We love potatoes! My daughter loves them in any form or style! They are cute and sweet and filling and tasty!!! So here are 2 ways to  cook potatoes faster than fast. They can be sides for any kind of meat. Sometimes I just serve them with salad. Here is a photo of both dishes: fried potatoes (traditional Romanian style) and buttered boiled potatoes (any style):

Ingredients: 5 large potatoes, basil (1 teaspoon), salt, flour (1 tbls), butter (2 tbls), olive oil (4 tbls)

Yield: 3 servings.

Time: approx. 30 min.

I peel, wash and boil the potatoes (until they cut easily with a knife).

I cut them into large cubes and divide them into 2 equal shares. The first share is the one I fry. So, here is the easy recipe for fried potatoes (Romanian style).

I add salt and basil and then I sprinkle flour. I fry them for 5 minutes at low heat. I use olive oil and I don’t stir, I just turn them on all sides carefully (because they break if I am not gentle).

This is what they should look like when they are done.

The other share of potatoes is much easier to prepare. I simply cut them into cubes, add salt and basil, 50 g of butter and microwave them for 5 minutes. I stir after I take them out of the oven and serve with parsley. In the following photo I have both dishes (the boiled buttered potatoes are in the lower part of the photo).
