Peppery and Crunchy Appetizer or Side Dish

Making an appetizer or side dish can often be time-consuming. Okra and potato hash is a wonderful option in situations when you don't have a lot of time. Not only is it quick and easy to make, it's also healthy—not to mention mouthwateringly good! The dry spices, ginger, and garlic impart a unique flavor, and the sesame seeds provide a wonderful crunch.

Let me show you the detailed recipe.
