Patates antinahtes is one of the most favourite dishes in the Cypriot cuisine. They are usually served at family gatherings and celebrations.
They are small potatoes with their skin still on, boiled in oil. Once they are a golden colour the oil is removed and they are fried in the pot with lots of salt and coriander.
This is where they receive their name from as antinahtes means tossed. In some recipes a little red wine is added for aroma.
Patates antinahtes are served as a side dish with meat. It is commonly served with afelia , (small pieces of pork in cooked in wine).
