My new favourite thing in the world... Bombay potato waffles! I'm a bit susceptible to kitchen gadget love, however I'm completely banned from purchasing any more, so my plan was to sneak my new (totally on sale, an investment really) waffle maker into the house to experiment with in secret.
I'm far too excited to keep it quiet ... these are amazing! Made from potato and buckwheat flour, flavoured with turmeric, cumin, red chilli and amchur... delicious, especially topped with green chutney, which is how I ate this one for lunch yesterday.
You will need a waffle maker, mine makes one big round waffle that splits into four pieces, and takes half a cup of mixture at a time.
To make four similar waffles you will need:
1 cup (250g) mashed potato
2/3 teaspoon turmeric
2/3 teaspoon cumin seed
1/2 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1/4 teaspoon amchur (dried mango powder)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon Eno's Fruit Salts or baking powder
1 heaped tablespoon buckwheat flour
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon ghee (or butter or oil)
Mix all ingredients together to make a thick batter (I start with the dry ingredients and add the liquid slowly last).
Leave to stand for 5 minutes, then cook your waffles as you normally would in your own waffle maker.
Everyone loved these tasty snacks, they are pretty healthy, gluten free, and can be made vegan easily by replacing the ghee with a good oil, the milk with water and using an egg substitute.
