“I loath Persian luxury.” -Horace
An Iranian friend of mine made this dish for me a few weeks ago and I had to have it. It’s really, really tasty, especially if served with some crunchy bread.
- 6 hot dogs, sliced
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 4-5 cups of white potatoes (either 10-12 small or 3-4 large)
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 6 oz tomato paste
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ cup water
- Salt and pepper
Bake potatoes at 350F for 20-30 minutes until easy stuck with a fork. Time will vary depending on the size of potatoes. Allow to cool and dice into 1 inch chunks.
Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a pan. Add onions, saute for 1-2 minutes and then add turmeric, curry powder, and salt and pepper. Saute for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and hot dogs and cook for another five minutes. Add tomato paste and ½ cup of water. Allow to simmer until sauce thickens, usually 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
Substitute any vegetarian or vegan “hot dog” for the hot dogs called for in the recipe. Alternatively, try adding sausage or chorizo for a different flavor.
Add Sriracha or chipotle hot sauce to the tomato paste for an extra kick.
