HOMEMADE HASH BROWNS RECIPE

Homemade Hash Browns Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

My first attempt making hash browns at home.  Am using fresh new potato.

With simple ingredients this Homemade Hash Browns are a new addition to our breakfast list.  Shredded potato is soaked in cold water to remove the starch. Drain and wrap with towel to remove excess water.

I find it a bit tricky to make since this  Homemade Hash Browns do not include flour or eggs to clump together.

Out of this recipe I get 2 x 6 in round hash browns.  My 1st one, turned out great with perfect size.  But had problem with the second one.  It breaks when I flip it.

What I did was remove them from the pan and shape into cutlets.  Mine looks darker in color due to addition of chili powder.  You may omit this if you don.t like a spicy hash browns.

Despite the hiccups, they came out  extremely tasty even my 1st one has been eaten immediately and I have no chance to  snap the photo.  We ate them as it is without any sauce.

EASY FISH CURRY RECIPE

Easy Fish Curry Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Fish curry is one of the most loved dish in Singapore especially fish head.

While there are variations  of fish curry originated from each state of India, mostly they used fresh spice mix unlike here, we used a ready made fish  curry powder (masala) that  was available in  the market.

During the olden days, we  have to get our own coconut milk by squeezing fresh grated coconut with water then strain.  But that was a thing of the past since a tetra pack coconut milk is being used now.

With hectic and busy lifestyle, most  women go for a quick and readily available ingredients.  Even now, you could find semi cooked  fish curry.  No peeling or grinding of  onion etc, just open the packet, heat it and add fish slices.    Your meal are ready in minutes.

My Easy Fish Curry did not use coconut milk but you could include about a cup of coconut milk if you like.  Also if you like sourish curry, add a bit more tamarind.

Besides taken with rice, this Easy Fish Curry goes well with flatbread, dosa or bread.
