The tater tots, hash browns, and curly fries that my husband loves are so easy to pull ready-made from a bag. The price tag on these manufactured time-savers gets to me though. Don’t you realize that you can get TEN POUNDS of raw potatoes for about the same cost? Nevertheless, I have a cabinet full of potatoes beginning to sprout eyes and a freezer that houses bags of the other treats.
It has been said that “time is money”.
So, a couple of weeks ago I found another treat that I’ll probably never bother to make from scratch. While mopping up curry sauce with a torn piece of naan bread is nice, a potato-stuffed paratha adds new dimensions to the experience. Flaky yet pliable, the outside doesn’t create a crumbly mess. Herbs and spices rescue what could be a bland potato filling. Difficult to prepare? All you need is a hot skillet and four minutes (two per side) to heat them up.
I got mine at Saraga.
