  8. Batata Harrah reminds me of Batata Vada. Batata Vada is an Indian fast food and they are nothing but potato fritters. Batata harrah looks delicious. Is the Arabic flat bread home-made too? It looks very similar to the Indian Chapati or tortilla.

  9. The coriander is what sets this apart from your average fried potatoes! Yum!
