    Potatoh my gosh.

    This delicious grated potato casserole is the most comforting food in the world. In Finland, you can buy frozen bags of ready-grated potato, so you can whip it up whenever you want (aka every evening, thanks).

    Sag Aloo is a yummy spinach and potato curry (shown right in this photo), but if you fancy a smaller bite, then try out aloo tikki – a potato fritter with onions and peas. Or have both, I would.

    3. Chorrillana, Chile

    Imagine nachos, but instead of tortilla chips you have fries, and instead of ground mince, you have sliced beef. Then add an egg. Chorrillana is perfect drunk food, and often served to share.

    Bubble and squeak is the most delicious way to use up leftover mashed potato (if you manage to have leftover mash, I salute you). Mix the mash with whatever veg you have hanging around, make into patties, and shallow fry. Serve with an egg and Bob's your uncle.
