Patata Fgata (Smothered Potatoes)

Going back to basics, the simple old fashioned way. This traditional Maltese staple side dish can be served with practically anything however due to its flavor profile, it goes best with fish.


2 large potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup water
1 large onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
Herbs (marjoram, basil, rosemary, parsley, a tsp of each)
Salt & Pepper
Olive oil, 3 tbls
2 bay leaves


Put all the ingredients in a saucepan, cover, bring to a boil and simmer until all liquid is absorbed and potatoes are soft. If need be, add more water until potatoes are fully cooked.

Serves 2. Double or triple ingredients accordingly.
