Potato Hash | Food Diaries

Hash PotatoesHello everyone! This time I am going to share a recipe which I think almost everyone loves or would love. The reason I am so sure is: the ingredients are super easy to find, chances are you already have them with you. I love it in any form, plain, with toast, rice, or anyway, just bring it on. Let's get started with Potato Hash! Let me share the ingredients with you for serving 2 people:
  1. Large potatoes, peeled and 1/2" cubed - 2
  2. Onion, roughly diced - 1/2
  3. Capsicum/red bell pepper, diced - 1
  4. Cloves of garlic, minced - 1 and a half
  5. Fresh chopped parsley - 1 tbsp (you can also use cilantro, but it has a very strong flavor so use about 1/2 tbsp)
  6. Olive oil/vegetable oil - 2 tbsp
  7. Salt and pepper, to taste
Method: In a large and shallow non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Now add the potatoes, gently toss so that oil gets mixed evenly, and place a lid on the pan. Let the potatoes cook covered for 10 min. Remove the lid and increase the heat to medium high, add the onion and capsicum/red bell pepper and gently mix and then set them back in a single layer so they can develop some color and crisp edges. Let the veggies cook on all sides for about 15 min by lightly mixing in between but not stirring up too much or else they will become soggy and lose their crunch. Add the parsley and garlic (adding garlic at this time locks its raw flavor in the veggies, which is heavenly believe me), and season with salt and pepper and cook for 1 more minute. Your potato hash is ready. Serve it immediately with your preference of bread or rice. Do try this out and let me know how do you like it. Thanks for reading, happy cooking! Love, AS P.S.: I sprinkled it with some Parmesan cheese for the love of it, but that is completely unnecessary, you can totally omit it.
