Saturday is always the “on-the-go” day in our house. Left to the “last minute” monster it would be leftovers or fast food. We found Mb’atten to be easy to make, tasty after reheating and very very filling.
This recipe puts some quantities behind the description given on the Temehu page for Libyan Food and slightly a different mix than the Mubatan Batata post over at visually stunning blog Libyan Food… not to mention the “growth potential” I have in photography :-)!
This recipe will provide a hearty dinner for 2 or a hearty addition to a picnic for 4 with 2 serving options:
Finger Food – Stop with just the potatoes for a sporting-event-watching food.
Bathed in Tomato Sauce – Easy to reheat later and placed in tin foil could also be taken to a picnic and heated on the grill.
If you are a more visual person complete step by step can be found in my Mubatan Batata set on Flickr.
Meal suggestions to accompany this dish can be found in the post on the Dinner News of Southern Libya.
8 small potatoes
Oil of choice for stove top pan frying.
