The recipe for papas arrugadas con mojo.

For food lovers and those curious about Canarian cooking, we are going to tell you the secret of one of the typical dishes: papas arrugadas con mojo. If you want to make delicious papas arrugadas con mojo in your house, you only need 2kg of small potatoes, half a lemon, four or five handfuls of salt. Clean the potatoes thoroughly to remove any earth and, when they are clean, put them in a saucepan and cover them with water. Add the lemon in order to get the white colour characteristic of these potatoes, and you leave them to cook. Then you change the water, but this time you only half-fill the saucepan and you add the salt. Finally, you leave them to cook until they are soft. To dry them, you must heat the potatoes without water.

In order that this dish is complete, the mojo verde is needed. The mojo verde is quite easy to make. You only have to crush in a mortar two peeled garlic heads, a handful of coriander, a green pepper, cumin and salt to taste. When you have mashed everything together, add little by little oil and vinegar until all is well mixed. Now the papas arrugadas con mojo are ready to eat!
