Patates Tiganites (Fried Potatoes, the Greek way)

  • Potatoes (about 1 medium potato per person)
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Salt
  • Oregano (optional)


  1. Peel and wash the potatoes.
  2. Cut them into slices about 1 cm, thick and then into sticks.
  3. Put them in a bowl with cold water until you are ready to fry them so that they do not oxidize.
  4. Just before frying, drain the potatoes and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Heat the olive oil (which should be enough to cover the potatoes) in a heavy skillet or a wok.
  6. Just before the smoking point, add the potatoes.
  7. Don’t stir before 5 minutes have passed and then stir occasionally until the desired colour.
  8. Serve hot sprinkling some oregano and extra salt on top.
