Recipe for Greek Potatoes With Coriander

Although oregano is surely the most popular of all the Greek herbs, Greeks use other herbs and spices in their dishes, as well. These roasted potatoes are perfumed with coriander, which go well with the sweet wine they are braised in.

Patates Antinaktes Recipe Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds new potatoes
  • 1/3 cup Greek olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds, crushed
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2/3 cup Mavrodaphne or other sweet red wine
  • 2/3 cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoons chopped, fresh parsley
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions to Prepare Greek Potatoes With Coriander:

Add the potatoes to a large bowl filled with water and soak for ten minutes. Scrub the skin well with a vegetable brush and then drain in a colander. Rinse with cold water and then pat dry with a clean towel or paper towels.

Pour the oil into a large, deep skillet and set the heat to medium. Add one layer of the potatoes to the skillet and cook them for ten minutes, turning each potato a few times so they cook all the way through. Remove the potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Add another batch of potatoes to repeat the process. Continue with this process until all the potatoes are cooked.

Place each potato on the cutting board and flatten it gently with a spatula until the potato cracks slightly. Add all the potatoes back to the skillet at once and add the coriander, salt, sweet wine, and white wine and cook the mixture over medium-low heat until the wine bubbles.

Cover the skillet and simmer the mixture on low for ten minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. Remove from heat, stir in the parsley, and then finish with a little pepper just before serving.
