Pan-Fried Garlic Potatos with Sesame

My second favorite way to prepare potatos (after roasting) has to be the good old pan fry. There’s nothing better than the crunch of thin-sliced fried potato if I do say so myself.

And what better way to season them this time of year, than with a little sesame and garlic. The sesame adds to the crunch, the garlic that pop of flavor.

Let’s not forget about that lovely smell as everything sizzles along nicely. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it.

To top it all off, you can add a few extra herbs of your choosing. Far healthier than fries and your kids are bound to love a few of these just as much.

This affordable little dish can be served up as a side, or a tasty snack between meals. Whatever you fancy.

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Serves: 5 – 6 people


  • 7 medium potatoes (uncooked)
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 heaping Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 large garlic cloves


  • First, wash and boil the potatoes (complete with skins) until they are soft
  • Drain the water and let them cool in the sive
  • Now its time to peel and slice those badboys
  • Once that’s done, heat up a large pan with oil
  • With the pan hot, add the sliced potatoes and a sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • Pan fry the potatos for a few minutes until all sides are crispy.
  • You can then add your sesame seeds and the thinly chopped garlic.
  • Stir and fry for another 2 minutes until the ingredients are nicely soaked into the potato.
  • Serve up for your friends and family

And there you have it. Enjoy. I might have to go make this dish now to be honest. It’s just so damn tasty. 🙂
