We love potatoes (Aidan too!). the ones here are really different. you can never go wrong with it. i'm going to try to grow my own this spring/summer (once Hardy has cleared the allocated lot in our back garden!), not that i have green hands, but we'll see how that works! should be interesting! wish me luck! anyway, i thought of making us a differnt type of kebab, but i didnt have any pitta. so i turned to one of my ever reliable cooking books, and searched for an alternative.
This is an easy alternative to conventional breads. you can serve them with your curries and kormas, you can serve them with your grilled chicken or simply salads. it's very simple to make. try it! oh, if you're making this for your todds, dont add any salt. and try to use just a little bit of oil/ghee.
6-7 Medium sized potatoes, unpeeled
175g plain flour (extra for folling)
a pinch of salt
concentrated butter, ghee or vegetable oil for frying
1. cook the poitatoes in boiling water for about 15 minutes, until just tender
2. drain, leave to cool slightly, then peel and grate into a bowl.
3. add the flour and salt to the potato and mix to form a soft dough, adding a litte water if necessary.
4. devide dough into round balls and dust with flour.
5. roll out each piece thinly on a lightly floured surface, making rounds bout a plate size.
6. heat oil/ghee in pan and shallow fry the bread pieces, one by one.
