What could be better than a medium-sized boiled potatoes, cleaned from a more delicate thin skin, seasoned with butter, sprinkled with dill, served with sour cream and still warm from the garden, the first summer tomatoes this was the beginning of my summer vacation at grandma’s every summer in the far childhood. But it’s a classic. And sometimes you want the scrapping of the classical foundations.

So today in my culinary column, I will try to cook exactly three dishes of new potatoes recipes from three different cuisines — Armenian, Spanish and Canarian.

So, we go to the market for groceries and will cook the new potatoes in Spanish with a spicy paste and bell peppers; new potatoes in Armenian with juniper berries and papas arrugadas — wrinkled potatoes with Canarian spicy sauce mojo picon …

Traditionally begin with the purchase of products on the market.

For the preparation of three dishes, we need such products:

— new potatoes — about 2 kg (from calculation 1 a large portion of each dish). The potatoes I bought two varieties — the Crimean rose and the Slav. So to speak, for completeness of the experiment. It should be noted that some of the dishes ponadobitsya cleaning, for some not. Crimean rose are easy to clean even without the knife is just under running water the skin is easily removed by rubbing fingers.

— Bulgarian, sweet and bitter red pepper — 2 pod

— garlic — head

olive oil, light and dark balsamic vinegar;

— marine coarse salt;

— thyme, juniper berries, cumin, Imeretian saffron, dried paprika, Bay leaf, black pepper, parsley.

First cook new potatoes in Spanish with a spicy paste and bell peppers.

To do this, the cleaned potato tubers are peeled and put on to cook on the fire. Don’t forget to salt the water.

Cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes, until tender.

While cooking potatoes, prepare the spicy paste. To do this, finely chop 2 cloves of garlic and a pod of bitter pepper.

To garlic and bitter pepper to add a bit of cumin on the tip of a knife and mash in a mortar. Then add to the mix 1-2 teaspoons of paprika and add 1.5 tsp light wine vinegar, then mix well knead

After 10 minutes of cooking the potatoes, drain the water and discard the potatoes in a colander, to stack.

In a pan pour 4 tablespoons of olive oil and heat, then put the potatoes in the pan

While the potatoes are browned, cut into rings sweet pepper pod

And add it, together with the previously prepared spice paste to the pan when the potatoes are slightly browned

Mix well the potatoes with the paste and peppers and fry for 3 minutes

Prepared potatoes to shift on a dish, garnish with herbs and fresh tomatoes.

In addition, the finished dish in Spain is sprinkled with coarse salt

Had a bite? Well, you can start cooking the next dish of our tasting program.

It will be new potatoes in Armenian with juniper berries.

For this dish to peel my potatoes don’t have to. Just good to wash it under running water and cut in half

Heat to heat the pan and pour in 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

Then put the potato halves cut-side down.

Potatoes salt and add to the pan 1 tablespoon of juniper berries

After a few minutes add 3-4 cloves of garlic, cut into thin slices and a few Bay leaves, and then make a fire down and fry for 5-7 minutes

After 5-7 minutes, add 1 tablespoon dark wine vinegar and immediately cover the pan with a lid

After 5 minutes add the thyme…..

… and Imeretian saffron, then roast the potatoes for another 10 minutes on the lowest flame

Serve the finished dish with fresh herbs, tomatoes and a dressing of creamy dill sauce (just mix sour cream with chopped dill)

Remains third dish — papas arrugadas, or wrinkled potatoes with Canarian spicy sauce mojo picon.

It should be noted that wrinkly potatoes is a traditional dish of the Canary Islands. This is one of the most unusual and exotic of Spanish cuisine, not only for tourists but even for the Spaniards, who were not born in the Canary Islands. Wrinkled potatoes can be called a “star dish” of the Canary Islands, it is easy and tastes like a baked potato on a fire.

Steps to prepare Papas Arrugadas just a few potatoes for him again not cleared from the peel, and only well washed and boiled with lots of salt — you will need about 150-200 grams of coarse sea salt.

You should not worry that the dish will be too salty, as the potatoes will take as much salt as he needs them.

Boil potatoes until tender for 20-25 minutes.

While it cooks, prepare the hot sauce.

To do this, finely chop one half large red sweet pepper, 3-4 cloves of garlic, mix with half a teaspoon of cumin and a teaspoon of ground chili pepper, add the dining room light bed of balsamic vinegar and knead well. You can even grind all the blender.

Then add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and mix well

When the potatoes are boiled, drain the water from the pan and put the potatoes back in. Pan put on fire for a few minutes until it evaporates the remaining liquid and potatoes will begin to shrink. The potatoes should be periodically stir.
