Patates Antinahtes means “Tossed Potatoes”. They have taken their name from the way they are cooked, as they are tossed in the sauce pan to be coated with the spices until they absorb the wine.

 

These potatoes are washed very well and then they are cracked and deep fried in olive oil.  They are removed from the sauce pan and after leaving about 1/2 cup oil in the pan they are put back again and seasoned with salt and pepper.  Crashed coriander seeds are added and they are cooked with red dry wine and a little water until the potatoes are soft.
