A Mouth-Watering Appetizer to Relish

In my opinion, hash browns are guilt-free snacks. I make this statement because I made it at home yesterday. These potato snacks absorbed very little oil, and they were very crispy outside and soft inside.

The potato is good for health. It is a very popular vegetable throughout the world, mainly due to its awesome taste and health benefits. It has low calories, and no fat, sodium, or cholesterol. It is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B 6, fiber, and antioxidants.

Hash browns are comfort food, especially for young adults and kids. It doesn't need any serious accompaniment to pair with. Tomato ketchup on the side makes a good combo.

Making hash browns was thrilling as there were only a few simple steps involved in the preparation. It took me about 30–40 minutes to serve hash browns for three people.

Now, let me share the detailed recipe with you.

  • Wash potatoes. Peel them. Grate them. Put them in ice-cold water. Set aside for 15 minutes.

  • In the next step, saute them for 5 minutes adding a few drops of oil. This is to further make them dry and par-cook them. I didn't follow this step. Straight away made the dough.
  • For making the dough, put pat dried potato in a large bowl. Add corn flour, rice flour, and all-purpose flour or wheat flour.
  • Add spices as per your choice. I added pasta spice mix, dried oregano, and black chili powder. Adding some paprika will also be good. Add salt.
  • Gently knead to get a smooth dough. Place it between two plastic sheets. Gently press it. Roll with a rolling pin to make it thin and flat.
  • Remove the topside sheet. Cut it in squares. Refer to the pic.
  • Fry 5–6 of such squares in a batch in medium hot oil. Fry them till they get golden brown. Place them on an absorbent paper towel.
  • Repeat the same for frying all the squares. Turn off the heat.
