I made Cajun Potatoes this week using Jofy Abraham’s recipe. The taste was exactly the same as that of Barbeque Nation (why would I ever doubt Jofy? :)). I also have this on authority from me team mates at work who went ga-ga over it. The sad part was that they got just one potato each. I will make it up to them by making another batch.
What I loved about this recipe was that it was super simple, especially because I used readymade Thousand Island Dressing and Cajun Spice mix. As a result, it took me barely abut 30 minutes to make this delicious starter.
I look forward to making Cajun Potatoes more often now.
