  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp pepper
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Water
  • Salt to taste


In a pan fry onions in olive oil till golden brown. When onions become translucent, add tomatoes. Cook for 5-10 min.

Add potatoes, salt and pepper and cook until the potatoes are done and soft. Simmer for 1 hour on low heat.

When done serve hot with rice or pita bread.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
