Hash Browns - a potato delight
This is another recipe that got me going for my little darling's sake. She loved the hash browns at Mc Donald's and then came the request that "Amma you should try making it at home one day". This is the grated potato version, you can also make it by boiling and mashing potatoes and then crumbing it for that cutlet kind of smooth finish. However, I loved this texture and they disappeared like hot cakes. An easy to make quick snack that has no age bar (everyone in the family is sure to love this one). A good snack for the tiffin too.
Ingredients for Hash Browns
Potatoes - a medium sized(grated raw)
pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Paprika - 1/2 tsp
Maida or all purpose flour - 1 tsp
Oil - for deep frying

1- Grate the washed and peeled raw potato into a bowl. Let rest for 10 minutes.
2- Squeeze out all the water from the potatoes and place in a mixing bowl. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Make into small bite sized balls. The potatoes bind well and with the all purpose flour you would not need anything else to keep everything together.
3- Take oil in a pan enough to deep fry the has browns. Place the has browns one after the other and fry till crisp and golden brown on both sides.
Serve with tomato sauce or a dip of your choice.
