DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub the potatoes, place them in a saucepan, cover with water, and boil until tender (about 20 minutes). Drain, allow the potatoes to cool. Peel them, cut them into quarters, and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the lemon juice, red pepper, and salt. Add onion slices and coat them with the mixture. Stir well and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat.
  • Add cheese, turmeric, and heavy cream. Stirring constantly, continue cooking over low heat until cheese melts and mixture is smooth.
  • Add the cooked potatoes and gently stir to heat through, about 5 minutes. Do not allow mixture to boil, or it will curdle.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with hard-boiled eggs.
  • Sprinkle onion mixture over the potatoes. Serve immediately while potatoes are hot.
