    1 1/2 - 2 pounds of Cyprus potatoes (peeled)
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    sea salt and black pepper
    5 - 6 cloves garlic (peeled/sliced)
    1/3 of a teaspoon sweet paprika
    1 1/2 - 2 large Spanish onions (sliced thin)
    5 bay leaves
    1/2 tablespoon of rosemary (finely chopped)
    40 threads saffron, infused in 5 tablespoons boiling water

    Set a large saucepan over a medium heat and add half the olive oil.
    When the oil is hot, add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the onion
    for 5 minutes, then turn down the heat to low and cook for a further
    5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and sweet in smell
    and taste.

    Add the garlic, paprika, bay and rosemary and cook for 5 minutes more
    to release their flavors.

    Meanwhile, cut the potatoes in half length ways and each half into two
    or three long wedges. Salt them lightly and pour on the saffron
    infusion. Toss well and leave for about 5 minutes.

    Add to the pan with the remaining oil then let everything simmer
    gently, covered, stirring occasionally and scraping the bottom of the
    pan until the potatoes are tender. This will take about 30 minutes. If
    there is any excess oil in the pan drain through a sieve and reserve
    for future use.

    The traditional recipe: small, washed but unpeeled potatoes deep
    fried, and then tossed in sesame seeds and a little red wine.

    I had thought that what you were referring to was Cyprus-style but I see
    not. What on earth is a Cyprus potato?

    It's great but use it sparingly. Now they just want potato recipes and
    before long we're talking 5 course meals with dessert.

    Why bother going to Google when it should be more efficient to ask the
    OP who must know what they are?

    Besides which, I wonder if Paul bothered to look at what was returned by
    his query. There wasn't much in the way of recipes, rather it was
    mostly UK references to crop failures of potatoes in Cyprus. Then
    again, consider the source...

    I did a Google search on

    Cyprus potatoes recipe

    and got information about recipes. Also lots of repeats of the posts
    here on this group!

    Recipe for cyprus potatoes

    1 1/2 - 2 pounds of Cyprus potatoes (peeled)
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    sea salt and black pepper
    5 - 6 cloves garlic (peeled/sliced)
    1/3 of a teaspoon sweet paprika
    1 1/2 - 2 large Spanish onions (sliced thin)
    5 bay leaves
    1/2 tablespoon of rosemary (finely chopped)
    40 threads saffron, infused in 5 tablespoons boiling water
    Set a large saucepan over a medium heat and add half the olive oil.
    When the oil is hot, add the onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the onion
    for 5 minutes, then turn down the heat to low and cook for a further
    5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and sweet in smell
    and taste.
    Add the garlic, paprika, bay and rosemary and cook for 5 minutes more
    to release their flavors.
    Meanwhile, cut the potatoes in half length ways and each half into two
    or three long wedges. Salt them lightly and pour on the saffron
    infusion. Toss well and leave for about 5 minutes.
    Add to the pan with the remaining oil then let everything simmer
    gently, covered, stirring occasionally and scraping the bottom of the
    pan until the potatoes are tender. This will take about 30 minutes. If
    there is any excess oil in the pan drain through a sieve and reserve
    for future use.

    So, godammit, "cyprus potatoes" are potatoes from the island of Cyprus.
    What distinguishes them from other potatoes and, even if they are
    delicious, why should you need special recipes to cook them?
