I’m back!! I was away from a land of free air condition (Scotland) to a land of free sauna (Malaysia). Now I have jet leg to cope, as usual….sigh. I should be sleeping but here I am typing away! I went back to see my parents. They are doing fine now. Will share more in the coming posts. Thanks very much for dropping by while I was away. Here is another of my favourite recipe to share with you…….Purple Majesty Potato Fries. Have fun cooking and baking!

I love good fries. When I have time I love to sit in McDonalds to enjoy a cup of latte and some fries while reading papers or books. Yet I have never cooked fries at home. But when I discovered Purple Majesty Potatoes recently I was just too eager to try it. It turned out very delicious.

Instead of deep frying it, I shallowed fried it so as not to waste oil. Here is my Purple Majesty Potato Fries recipe:

purple majesty potatoes
corn flour
sea salt

Cut purple potato into strips

Cut purple potato into strips

Wash the potatoes well. Cut the potato into strips with the skin on.

Sprinkle corn flour onto potato strips

Sprinkle corn flour onto potato strips

Sprinkle some corn flour over it and mix well. This gives it a nice outer crisp.

Fry the purple potato strips

Fry the purple potato strips

Heat up some oil in a frying pan or wok. Pour in the potato strips and pan fry them. Cover. Every now and then, stir and turn them so that every side is fried. ¬†Add some crushed sea salt and a few tablespoons of water and cover to steam cook it. When the water dries up (just 1-2 minutes), dish up and sprinkle with chopped coriander and serve. You can enjoy it just as it is or you can serve it with roast. It’s very delicious. I like it very much.

They look so purple. I haven’t tried them yet but frying them is a good start.

You were back in Malaysia? When? Where? Not in Sibu, I hope… Didn’t let me know. We could have met up and gone fro some nice mam-mams…. I’ve seen these purple potatoes on tv - not too keen on the colour. At first, I thought they were yam!

Biren @ Roti n Rice  on November 4th, 2010

A lot of travelling this year eh? Hope you had a god trip but glad that you are back :) Can’t wait to hear more about it.

These purple potatoes are great. I have onl encountered it once over here in the US but I don’t think it is Purple Majesty Potatoes. You fries look very tasty.

Developing a crush on purple colour they look gorgeous!

Drick  on November 4th, 2010

I love fries too - frying them is another matter. I have got where I do not like to fry too much these days, not for the reason it should be but because of the clean up!!! So glad you are back and had a good trip, glad your family is well and can’t wait to hear of your adventures…. (did you cook any Mexican while back home….hehehe)

Faith  on November 4th, 2010

I’m glad you’re back, Mary! I hope you had a wonderful time visiting with your family. The fries look delicious, and what a gorgeous color they are!

Welcome home, Mary! I think we have been extremely busy for the past whole week. I was actually planning something for you but unable to get the stuffs done in time. Guess, have to delay my plan. However, glad that everything was fine back home. How’s your parents? We chat later. Hope you’re having a great week ahead.

Hey Mary, I never knew there’s Majesty purple potatoes! I love your ‘land of free air-cond’ and ‘land of free sauna’ comparison, so, after the sauna bet you must have lost a couple of pounds!
