Love Bites

So this recipe was never intended to make it on here, as I made this dish in a hurry last night for dinner. Anyway I took a pic of it nonetheless and well, here it is.

In case you were wondering what it is, it is a fusion of sorts. The love child of a potato (aloo) pie and a pholourie, if you may. This bright idea came to me one day when I had a hankering for both pholourie and potato pie. And, being the lazy gal that I am and not wanting to do both, the idea for love bites was born.


For the pholourie portion 

First, you need the link to my Pholourie Mixture Recipe <<< Click, click, click. Great! Now make half the recipe there. 🙂

For ze potato filling:

  • 4 medium potatoes – peeled, washed and cubed
  • 2 cloves of garlic (not to be confused with an entire head of garlic, por favor mi amor)
  • .5 (half) teaspoon of ground cumin (geera)
  • Salt to taste
  1. Boil the potato and garlic together in a pot, until tender enough to make mashed potatoes.
  2. Drain and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Smash the living daylights out of the potato and garlic until you have something resembling mashed potatoes.
  4. Add cumin and salt to taste. Set aside and allow to cool.

Final steps:

  • These are going to be deep fried, so you want to heat your oil to approximately 350 degrees/medium heat.
  • Take your potato mixture and form them into  balls approximately 3 inches in diameter.
  • Coat them in the pholourie mixture.
  • Add them CAREFULLY to the oil.
  • Fry until a golden yellow.
  • Enjoy. 🙂
