Simple and delicious
I think you must have heard before that potatoes with eyes (sprouts) are poisonous as it contains Solanine (very toxic even in small quantities). Anyway, you just have to remove these sprouts. Better throw away the potato if it has turned bad, green underneath the skin and has too many sprouts. Although some research has shown that you have to eat at least a whole bag of potatoes to actually be poisoned but it is better to practice some caution. Better be safe than sorry!
There are many ways to cook potatoes. One of my favorite is soya sauce potato.
2 potatoes, skinned and cut into slices
3 shallots, skinned and cut into slices
2 table spoons of light soya sauce
½ teaspoon of dark soya sauce
Salt to taste
Deep fry the potatoes in hot oil until it turn brown. Take out the potatoes and put aside.
Leave around 2 table spoon of oil in the wok. Put in the shallots and sautéed until crispy. Add in the potatoes, light soya sauce, dark soya sauce and salt to taste.
