Life On An Eversilver Plate

Recipe time!

There are plenty of blogs out there dishing out serious stuff (who reads them, btw?). My head is whirring with so much cerebral activity that I've decided to take it easy. The next few blogs will be recipes. Simple, home-made and absolutely lip-smackingly gorgeous food made easy. I'm kicking off with one of my favourites.

Straw potato cake
(About 25 minutes to cook)
You'll need -
Potato - 2 large
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt & pepper - to season
Here's how to-
1. Grate the potatoes (yes, grate them) with the skin
2. Quickly season it with salt and pepper before it turns brown
3. Heat the oil in a saucepan and wait till it's quite hot
4. Add the grated potatoes and pack them in quite tight with a spoon.
Make sure the potatoes aren't loosely packed as the cake will fall apart when you flip it
5. Cover and let it simmer for a good 15 minutes
6. When the bottom side is nice and browned, gently loosen it from the saucepan by using a flat wooden ladle.
Now slide it onto a plate and then tip the plate upside down into the pan so that the other side cooks.
7. When both sides are deliciously golden, turn off the heat
8. Slice and serve hot
