We are finally on the last day of the series and I simply can't believe that I have reached this day. When I started I was still very skeptical if I will ever complete the series or not. This was the first time I have ever started without anything being done except the list, that was ready a long time ago. I had opted to do One Ingredient all of this month and my star ingredient was Potato. I know this is one vegetable that's globally loved and devoured.
Yet it was funny how my boys don't eat this and I practically had to feed Hubby dear almost day after day with different potato gravies and endless pancakes for Konda at odd times.There were a couple of dishes that Peddu loved and wanted to repeat. And naturally, all the dishes were a hit and given a choice I might repeat, albeit many months later. I still have a huge stash of potatoes tucked in as Amma thought I will still be making more potato dishes. I will have to plan something to make.
To make it more interesting and challenging I decided to break up into different weeks, and the themes got shuffled depending on what I got ready. For a person who is not really keen on potatoes, 26 dishes were an overdose for sure. I have a huge collection of potato dishes already across both my blogs. So I must confess I was shocked to see still so many to be covered. Some recipes were the same with different names, so those I left out.
For the final day, I thought I will complete with a dessert. I have adapted this from Priya Srinivasan
again. It's the Potato Apple Bread, a flat bread from Ireland. This potato apple bread is made by stuffing the apples in a potato flour dough and pan fried. I served mine with chocolate sauce for Konda and she loved the last bite. Did you notice the first picture, well the art is by her and I know it looks so cute. What a lovely way to end the series.
I thank my fellow BM buddies for doing this Mega Marathon with me. I know I still have lots to catch will do soon.
Potato Apple Bread
1/2 cup Potato
1/4 cup All purpose flour
2 pinches Baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 an apple
2 tsp sugar
2 pinches Cinnamon
- MW the potatoes for 4 mins, soak and peel the skin. When it is still warm mash with a fork and add flour, salt and baking powder to this mashed potato, and start kneading to make a smooth dough. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
- While the dough is resting, wash the apple, cut it into thin slices, toss it along cinnamon powder and sugar.
- When ready to roll out, dust the balls with flour and roll out into circles. Using a circle cutter, shape it out. Place the apple slices on the first disc, cover with the other one. Press the edges.
- Heat a nonstick pan, when it is hot enough, add butter and slide a sealed bread on to it. Cook on a slow flame until the sides are browned well. Turn and cook the other side too. Flipping it over is quite tricky, so slide it to a plate and turn it over.
- Transfer it to a serving plate, cut and serve with a generous serving of butter or fresh cream. I served it with chocolate sauce.
