Instructions

  • Once the oil is medium-hot, add Chopped Onion. Fry till it softens.
  • Add minced garlic. Cook till aromatic (avoid burning)
  • Add chorizo. Cook 4- 5 minutes. It will start to release oil and color would change.
  • Add Cubed potato. Cook on medium heat 5-7 minutes.
  • Add Cumin Powder, thyme and season with salt. Mix well.
  • Add Chicken Stock and bay leaf. Cover and let it cook
  • Stir in between. If required add more stock. Potatoes should be cooked and become soft.
  • Once potatoes are cooked through,reduce the heat and add milk.
  • Stir well. Cover and let it cook further for another 10 minutes on low heat.
  • While serving, garnish with chopped green onion.

Notes

  • ┬áThe chorizo is spicy enough, so I have not added any chili powder. You can adjust the spices as per your preference.
  • If you want to reduce the cooking time, substitute raw potato with cooked potatoes.
