Potato Cups


Pretty aren't they? The versatile potato is cooked in my kitchen very regularly. After all, who does not like potatoes? So my entry to Jihva for Ingredients – Potatoes, hosted by Vaishali of Happy Burp is Pomme de terre cups. Simple and quick, you can fill in any stuffing you wish into these cups. Here's what I did:


Parboil the potatoes, keep the skin intact. Cut the potatoes into two. Scoop out the centre and keep aside. Grate/mash the centre, add some cooked corn, dry basil, salt, crushed black pepper, a few scrapings of cheddar cheese, a few drops of milk and mix well. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes at 200 degree C.

One more mellowed look.....

This looks gourmet. What size are the potatoes you have used? Hot and sour soup looks yum. I will add some mushrooms in mine the next time around.

You know I think presentation is key with food and these potatoes make you want to dive into them and swallow them in seconds!
Great job, I will be coming back for more!
