CRISPY CREAMY POTATOES AND GARLIC


When it was time for dessert Suvir and Charlie turned to each other with a questing look as to what the other had prepared, which turned out to be nothing. No problem: Charlie dipped into his special stash of sour cherries that had been mascerating in verjuice for many months and also located a container of crème fraîche. Served in lovely glass goblets it was so tangy creamy luscious/fabulous I forgot to take a photo!

When I returned home,I lost no time in making those addictive crispy creamy potatoes with roasted garlic. The recipe is ini Suvir's most recent book Masala Farm cookbook.
