Batata Harra aka Spicy Potatoes

Updated: Feb 22, 2021

Batata Harra originated in the Levant region of the Middle East and they are such a delicious part of our cuisine. They are so easy to make, yet packed full of flavor. You can eat them with a fork or use pita bread. Don’t make fun, but I do use pita bread sometimes then dip it in hummus for a triple kick of flavor. Anyways, let’s get to it, you don’t want to miss this one!
