Potato Onion Muffins #sikandalouscuisine

Set Oven at 180C - Bake 40-45 Minutes.
This 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.
1. 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 .
2. 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.
6. 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.

Note :
1. 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.
3. Cook with love !
