Potatoes are a staple food in every household around the world. From our favourite childhood French fries to elegant choices such as fish and potatoes commonly found in big restaurants, potatoes can be used in a wide range of ways.
However, there is a variety of potatoes to choose from for every specific dish. Some have a better texture while others have better taste. Some common varieties of potatoes are mentioned below to help you understand the differences between each one:
1. Russet potatoes
This type of potato has a very versatile nature. It can be used in a variety of ways such as simply deep frying it or roasting it in the oven. It has a very airy texture alongside having the ability to become crisp and honey brown upon frying. Furthermore, these potatoes are only slightly sweet hence perfect for savoury dishes.
2. Purple/ blue potatoes
These potatoes are generally small sized and are used in a variety of ways. However, these are most preferably used in salads as the main ingredient because of their unique colour. Similar to russet potatoes, these potatoes are not too sweet either and have a nutty flavour to them.
3. Red potatoes
As the name suggests, these potatoes have a red skinned surface. These potatoes are generally used in liquid based broths and soups and not fit for frying because of their texture.
