Method : Its so simple and quick

Even my 10 year old kid can follow this easily.

  • Preparation time:30 minutes
  • Cooking time : 5 minutes
  • Yield : 3 to 4 people
  1. Boil 500 g of potatoes with a pinch of salt until tender. Don't boil the potatoes too much as it could make the mixture too soggy and watery.
  2. Remove the skin of the potatoes when it is cooled and mash the potatoes with a fork. It is ok to have small chunks of potatoes.
  3. Fry some chopped small onions, garlic paste, chopped green chili on medium heat with a tea spoon of butter.
  4. If you are not a vegetarian, you can add chopped bacon to make the waffles more tastier and crispier
  5. Add salt and pepper as per your taste.
  6. Mix this tempered mixture with mashed potato with 2 table spoons of milk. Don't overmix and just use a spatula.
  7. Add an egg and mix. (optional if you are a vegetarian)
  8. Preheat your waffle iron after applying oil on the surface for about 2 minutes.
  9. Use an ice cream scoop with the waffle mixture and put inside the waffle iron and close it.
  10. Cook it for 5 minutes till both sides become golden brown

Serve Hot in Many Different Ways

Serve hot with any of the following

  • Herbs pasta sauce
  • Sunny side up egg on top of the waffle
  • Drizzled mayo with chopped Cilantro
  • Sprinkle grated cheese on top
  • Grilled seer on top of the waffle
  • Saute prawns with Avacado
  • Grilled sausages on top

Tips and Facts

1. If you don't have a waffle iron and if you don't want to buy a waffle iron, still you can make potato waffle using your toaster. If you don't have a toaster, use a heavy bottom pan and fry both sides. Unfortunately then you can't call it waffles,but no harm to the taste.

2. Potato waffles are common in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Regular waffles said to be originally from Belgium.

3. Home made waffles are much better than frozen waffles.

4. August 24th is the National Waffle Day.

5. The word “waffle” first appears in the English language in 1725. Yes, it has a long history.

Be the Wonder Woman; Try and Improvise

You really can make lot of variations with this waffle recipe and it’s a tasty and healthy dish. Once I served tempered prawns and avocado on top of the potato waffle and it was beyond my words to explain how nice it looks and how tasty it was.

If you have small children you can add broccoli, spinach or chopped greens into the potato mixture and they will eat the greens in the waffle with no complains.

Be that super woman and bring out your creative ideas to improvise your own dish and comment and share with others.
