How to make crispy potato rolls 

INGREDIENTS

3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped

1/2 a small brown onion, finely diced

2 tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated

1 tspn red chilli flakes

3 tbsp rice or potato flour

1 tbsp chives, finely chopped 

2 packets Maggie chicken 2 minute noodles

1/4 cup flour

1 cup water

Salt and pepper to season 

Oil for frying

METHOD 

Peel and dice the potatoes. Place them in a pot of cold water, and bring to boil, cook until the potatoes are tender.

Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle. In a large bowl, add the finely diced onion, cheese, chilli flakes and flour, and mix until well combined.

Take a tablespoon of the mixture and use damn hands to press into little cylinder shaped logs. Repeat until all mixture is used.

Use a rolling pin and crush noodles well, tip into a shallow bowl – and reserve seasoning sachets.

In another shallow bowl, add flour and seasoning sachets, and mix to combine. Gradually add water until you have a smooth pancake-like batter.

Dip potato rolls into the batter then roll in crushed noodles. Repeat until all mixture is used. Place potato rolls on a tray and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Heat oil in a deep pan and fry until golden brown and crisp. 

Serve with a spicy tomato dipping sauce.
