DIRECTIONS

  • Cut potatoes into chunks and boil about 8 minutes in a little water.
  • Add spinach and cook until potato chunks are tender, then drain well in a sieve or colander.
  • Heat the oil in a large, deep saucepan until very hot.
  • Add the potatoes, spinach, beans and remaining ingredients.
  • Fry until potatoes are creamy and ingredients are cooked through. This will be quite quick in the hot oil. (Decide yourself on the quantity of oil needed).
  • The recipe says merely to sprinkle with red pepper powder, simmer 3 minutes, and serve!
  • I'm not sure, but it might need some draining. Follow your chef's instincts. These recipes are never perfect as given!
