Baked Potato Fingers

Most of you know that the pud is my favourite vegetable and though these days I am trying to avoid it as it shows on you.Okay, its another way of telling that I am fat!. But I could not resist the very easy and baked potato fingers which I had seen in Veenas Veg Junction, who is my partner this month for Blog Hop Wednesdays, by Radhika.The recipe had cooked mashed potato and  I used instant potato flakes(Aloo Mash) available here to make my mashed potato. 

Ingredients:
Boiled, Peeled and Mashed Potato: 1 cup

All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Salt: as per taste
Dried Oregano: 2 tbsp
Red Chilli Flakes: 1 tsp
Dried Thyme: 1 tbsp

Olive Oil: 4 tbsp

Preparation:
In a bowl, mix together flour,salt and the seasonings. To this add the potato cooked and mix. Add oil 1 tbsp at a  time and knead everything together to form a soft dough.

Pinch small pieces of this dough and shape into long fingers.

Place these on a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 200C/400F for about 10-15 minutes. Take out and flip each finger onto the other side and continue baking for another 10-12 minutes till you can see brown spots on the edges or sides and inhale a hearty comforting aroma.

Take out, cool till you are able to resist and serve warm with your choice of dip/sauce as a hearty teatime snack.


Rolls are crunchy and hearty and filling.They reek of comfort which only potato can bring out. These are excellent as a for school snack box as well.
