Mojo Potatoes

I love mojo potatoes from Shakey’s and this is my homemade version of it.  It’s not an exact recipe, add more or less of the spices and seasonings as you like.  

I steamed the potatoes to pre-cook it, it make it easier to cut into thin rounds and it’ll only take a short time to fry them, others boil or bake it first and there are some recipes that just use raw potatoes.

These are perfect with breaded fish or fried chicken!

steam the potatoes, cool and cut into thin discs

dip each potato into milk-egg mixture

then dredge it in seasoned flour

and fry until golden brown
