Today is the beginning of yet another month of blogging marathon, where all my co bloggers will be participating with their lip smacking dishes. This week, I’m running BM 82 with the theme ‘USA ‘.
Now, why did I chose this theme? The reason is, we all were fed up by eating sweets all these festive days. So I wanted to make something savoury. I had few dishes in my mind that my sister makes frequently and vouch for their deliciousness. So I wanted to try them. My dish for the first day of week is hash brown.
Hash brown are a potato based very easy to make side dish with simple mild flavours (though you can adjust flavours according to your taste).
It is not that I’m making hash browns for the first time. I made it earlier also, but that was a disaster.
My daughter has potatoes in her menu on Friday and that’s the day when I usually have a fast. First time, when I made hash browns, was also a Friday. Since the shredded potatoes look voluminous, somehow I added more amount of salt than required. Due to my fast I couldn’t taste it even and packed it in the lunch box of my daughter. The poor girl, when came back home was full of hatred for hash browns. So I never dared to make it again till today.
Today, I was very cautious about salt. I used Amul salted butter and didn’t put any extra salt and just sprinkled some pepper on the top.
When I told my daughter that I have made hash browns for her tiffin. She wasn’t happy with it. On my insistence, when she tasted it, she was all praise for it and asked me to make it again. Believe me, I had to make it again in the evening.
I am sending this recipe for Blogging Marathon #82 Week 1 Day 1
