POTATO TRIANGLES STUFFED WITH MACARONI


This snack always reminds me of my childhood. Mom always made this snack when we had guests. We prepare the potato like we do for the cutlets and stuff it with masala macaroni. You can adjust the spice level according to your taste.

Ingredients:
For the covering:
Potatoes .... 7-8
Bread crumbs .. 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves .. handful (finely chopped)
Caraway/kummel seeds ... 1 tbsp
Salt ...... to taste


Boil the potatoes and mash them. Let it cool and then add all the above mentioned ingredients. Set aside.

For the filling:
 Macaroni/Pasta .......... 1 cup cooked ( use small variety or take any cooked pasta and cut into small pieces)

Onion .......... 1 small ( chopped finely)
Tomato ........ 1 large ( cut into small pieces)
Ketchup ....... 1 tbsp
Garlic ......... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder .. 1/4 tsp ( add more if you prefer spicy)
Cumin powder ... 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1/2 tsp
Salt ...... to taste
Oil ..

To make the filling:



Heat oil in a pan and add the garlic and onion. Saute for a few minutes and add the tomatoes. Cover until they are cooked. Now add all the spice powders and salt and ketchup. Let it cool. Finally stir in the (macaroni) pasta and mix well. Let it cool before using.

 Also you need:
Bread crumbs ... 1 cup for rolling.
Oil for shallow frying.


 Method:
1. Spread a plastic sheet or cling film on the table top / kitchen platform.

2. Sprinkle a handful of bread crumbs. Take half of the prepared mashed potato. Pat it with the hand into a round shape about half inch thick.

3. Similarly make another one of the same size.

4. Spread the filling on it and carefully lift the plastic sheet to place the other one on top of it.

5. Press it again with the palm to make it firm and even.

5. Cut into triangles. (You can cut in any shape you prefer)
6. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top.

7. Heat a little oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry the slices turning them carefully until crisp.
