1 teaspoon minced Garlic

3 thing to keep in mind when Boiling Potatoes.

1/ If you have a variety of potatoes to choose from, choose potatoes that can handle the boiling temperature but still keep its shape.

2/ Although it will take 15-25 minutes for the whole Potato to become tender make sure to check if it is done after 10 minutes as smaller ones can cook faster than larger ones.

3/ Do not add the Potatoes to boiling water but place them in cold water and let them cook while the temperature rises.

Wash the Potatoes, place them in a pan of cold water and gradually let it boil over high heat. avoid covering the pan as the Potatoes boil.

5 minutes into boiling the Potatoes, add Salt.

When the water starts boiling, reduce heat and leave it to simmer on low fire until the Potatoes are cooked, 15-20 minutes.

Once the Potatoes are cooked through, immediately run cold water through them, drain and leave it to cool.

Peel the skin of the cooked Potatoes and cut them to required size and set them aside.

In a medium sized bowl, add Olive oil, Pepper, minced Garlic, chopped cilantro, combine these ingredients, season with Salt if needed.

Add the Potatoes to this bowl of ingredients and gently toss them through, making sure all the ingredients are incorporated.
