For me this is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes. It uses no oil, water or other liquid, as none at all is needed. The potatoes are cooked in their own skin, similar to jacket potatoes, but done in a saucepan. Traditionally, this dish would have been cooked in a clay pot, but any thick-bottomed saucepan with a tight fitting lid will do. You really must try this! Have faith in the method below, it works and, no, the potatoes will not burn! I have also done these pots adding harrisa at the end, or garlic, truly delicious.
