Potato Bread

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.

Rita Ho said...

I like your suggestion of serving with curries. It sounds like a can't go wrong recipe, so I will try. :)

On a separate note, please check your email, Zaza. Blurry stuff at my end. :(

Funny Funny, before i read this, i was making one just like this, now awaiting to be fried...ah in Spore we call it Roti Boyan.

Mine is just plain dough with a teeny bit of oil -easy to knead, then roll out into circles.then mashed potatoes filling and kemaskan the side like karipap.

mush: the least i could do. i feel so sorry for nora, but she's one tough cookie and you both are strong indeed. lots of best wishes to you 3, keep warm and happy easter!

nina: tak boleh ganti roti canai! this one is a bit solid.. kenyang makan sekeping! roti canai can eat 2 keping! hehe.. try and let me know k?

rita: yipee! i can now send you a card! thanks rita dear. please dont feel bad about it.

anzed: brunei potatoes are better than malaysian potatoes? where do they get it from? i know brunei banyak import things but potatoes too? but you know, makan banyak sgt potatoes not so good... you know here, friture here and there... tak tahan la!!

mp3: thank you.

k.linad: kita dah lama tak masak sebab winter. kol 4lebih dah gelap, so tak lawo amik gambar. perhaps spring/summer nanti i will cook more! same goes for you too ya! jgn gantong apron dulu!

swahilli: roti boyan sounds so easy. this one's a bit heavy and tastes a little bit like kuih keria! perhaps i should try your version one day! (p.s: i'm sure dad would like to thank you for the birthday wish!! me too, so thanks!!!)
