Potato Onion Muffins #sikandalouscuisine
Set Oven at 180C - Bake 40-45 Minutes.
recipe came to my head after I made banana chocolate muffins the other
day . I enjoyed those a lot , but at heart am into savory spicy stuff ,
so did a bit of Google , and a bit of logical experimenting and came up
with these delicious potato muffins - Tweak to taste.
1 Cup Wheat Bran Flour
1 Cup Maida.
50 Grams Butter.
2 Tablespoons Oil.
1.5 Cups Potatoes - Boil , cool , grate from large hole.
1/2 Cup Chopped Leek including Green - Use Onions too.
1/2 Cup Cherry Tomatoes Cut in Two - Alternatively use chopped tomatoes.
1/2 Half Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese.
1/2 Cup Milk.
1/2 Cup Curd.
2 Large Eggs.
4-5 Table Spoons Green Herbs - I used basil leaves and dhania leaves .
1.5 Teaspoons Baking Powder.
1.5 Teaspoons Baking Soda.
Adjust salt with cheese
Black Pepper Crushed to Taste.
Chili Flakes to Taste.
Heat 1 Tablespoon oil , add pepper/chilies , then leek / onion and cook
30 seconds , next add tomatoes and cook another 30 seconds , don't
overcook . Take off heat. Add green herbs.Fold in grated potatoes .
Mix salt and the flours , add butter and oil , use a hand mixer to get
bread crumb like consistency.Gently fold in the cooled potato ,tomato
,onion mixture. 3. Beat eggs , add cheese , add curd and milk , beat well for 30 seconds.
4. Fold the ' custard ' ( step 3 ) mixture into the flour mixture , gently mix it all .
5. Lastly tip in baking powder & baking soda , mix well.
Take 14 greased baking cups , fill the mixture to 3/4th level and bake
for 40-45 minutes or till a toothpick comes out clean.Or pour into a
baking dish and make a flan/loaf.
This was my first attempt and it came out fabulous . I like what wheat bran flour does to the flavors. Do try it too.
I have used standard measuring cups / measures in the recipe . Do
google ' measuring cups set ' and a lot will be thrown up , very
reasonable and most useful.
2. While baking , always add baking powder/soda at the very end to retain its strength.
