    UmmBinat's Note:

    Similar to the flavourful potatoes you can purchase in Lebanese restaurants throughout Ottawa, Canada. This goes really well with Shoarma Spice Mix marinated chicken breast, Lebanese Rice With Sharia (Vermicelli) (Gluten Free), and a garlic sauce like, Garlic Mayonnaise (Aioli) without the cilantro and a little Balkan yogurt to lighten it up, along with, Middle Eastern Lebanese Fattoush Bread Salad, for a meal like the restaurants only way better!

      These are superb potatoes. Despite being fried, they are not greasy or heavy. And the enjoyment began for me in the prep. While the little cubes of potatoes were browning, I was chopping onion and cilantro and the smell was so bright and clean. Then I ground coriander seeds in the mortar pestle--more of that very bright scent which was making my mouth water. Finally, when everything was saute-ing together and I added the squeeze of lime, I couldn't wait to taste the dish. Nothing overwhelms--it's just right--delicious on its own and I know it will be terrific as an accompaniment to something grilled. I did leave out the cayenne and went with some freshly cracked black pepper. I'm still licking my chops. LOL

      I loved these potatoes! I used minimal oil and splashed a little water in the pan to keep them moist while browning. I loved the fresh flavors; especially the fresh cilantro and the splash of fresh lime juice. These are excellent and I'll be making these again. Thanx!

      A lovely potato dish it went well with a tossed salad and barbecued meat. I did add a bit more Cayenne pepper as we love that extra bit of heat, thanks for posting this.
