Cooking Potato Curls:
Step 1: prepare the ingredients.
It is not difficult to prepare this dish. First, carefully rinse 500 grams of potatoes under cold running water. Put it in a deep pan and fill it with water so that it is higher than the level of tubers by 8 - 10 centimeters. Then put this pan on the stove and cook the potatoes “in their skins” until fully cooked, over medium heat, for 20-30 minutes. Cooking time is considered after boiling the liquid, and its duration depends on the type of potato.
Immediately after this, we begin to prepare other products. Cut the paraffin crust with a knife from hard cheese and rub it on a fine grater into a small bowl. We also put on the kitchen table 50 grams of butter, 1 chicken egg, nutmeg, black pepper and salt.
Step 2: prepare the boiled potatoes.
In 20 - 25 minutes check the readiness of the potatoes with a fork. We introduce its teeth into one of the tubers, if they enter under pressure, then the potatoes need to be boiled, and if the teeth enter the pulp of the vegetable gently, then we remove the pan from the stove and pour its contents into a deep colander previously installed in the sink. You should not wait until the tubers have cooled. We string 1 potato on a fork and, helping ourselves with a kitchen knife, remove the skin from it, in the same way we clean the rest of the potatoes. Then we pass the peeled potatoes through a meat grinder with a small nozzle or grind it using a food processor. Transfer the mashed potatoes into a deep bowl.
Step 3: prepare the potato mass.
In a bowl with mashed potatoes, add chopped cheese, to taste salt, black pepper and ground nutmeg. Then we drive in the same capacity 1 chicken egg without shell.
We arm ourselves with a wooden kitchen spoon and mix all the ingredients in the bowl to a homogeneous consistency.
The result should be a medium-density potato mass. Cool it to room temperature. During this time, preheat the oven up to 190 degrees Celsius and cover the non-stick baking sheet with a sheet of baking paper.
Step 4: form the potato curls.
When the potato mass has cooled, transfer it to a pastry bag with a star-shaped nozzle. Then squeeze the mashed potatoes, in the form of curls, onto a baking sheet prepared for baking. At will, you can come up with any other figures: eights, flowers, sticks. The main thing is that between them there is a small free space, at least in 3 - 4 centimeters.
Step 5: bake the potato curls.
Set a baking sheet with potato curls on a medium rack in a preheated oven. Bake this yummy 15 - 20 minutes or until a golden crust forms around the edges of the "curls." When this happens, we put on kitchen gloves and take out a baking sheet from the oven.
We put it on a cutting board, previously laid on the kitchen table, alternately poke potato “curls” with a kitchen spatula, put them on a large flat dish and immediately serve it on the table.
Step 6: serve the potato curls.
Potato curls are served hot as a side dish for meat dishes, seafood or poultry dishes. As a complement to this dish, you can offer a salad of fresh vegetables, pickled vegetable slices, homemade mayonnaise, any fresh herbs. The taste of potato curls is very interesting, with a crisp on top resembling chips or french fries, and inside there is a fragrant, soft, potato-cheese pulp. Unusual and tasty!
