Cilantro and Garlic Potatoes

A yummy Lebanese way of serving potatoes. These go great with chicken or meat.

You will need:

  • 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
  • 4 large potatoes, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt to taste


Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). When the oil is hot, add potatoes, and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cilantro and garlic; cook and stir for about 5 minutes. After draining the potatoes, add them to the skillet along with the cumin, lemon juice and salt. Stir to coat the potatoes, and serve.
