Today we made a delicious meat stuffed potato snack with a cooked cinammon apple with a quinoa milk drink for dessert. These two dishes are named Papa Rellenos and Masamora de Quinoa con Apple Compote. I will be writing about Papa Rellenos and Daniela will be writing about the dessert.
Personally Papa Rellenos reminded me a lot of dumplings just with a much thicker and carbier exterior. I do not always enjoy eating fried food and for you health fanatics out there, I would recommend this excellent dish for a cheat day.
12 kilo Potatoes
12 tbsp Garlic
200g Ground beef
3 tbsp Tomato Paste
100g of peas
1 tsp Salt
14 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Oregano
How to cook:
a) Boil potatos, carrots, and peas in the same pot *Make sure to cut the carrot into small squares before boiling.
b) Mince the onion
c) Put oil into a hot pan and add onion and crushed garlic, cook and add tomato paste, salt, pepper, meat, and cooked vegetables. Stir and cook while adding the oregano. *Make sure to cook each part for a minute or two before adding in the next item.
d) Add about a half cup to a cup of water to mix and keep cooking until the water has soaked into the mix.
e) Take out the cooked mix and let it sit in a container for 5-10 minutes to let it cool down a bit.
f) Peel potato and mash it. After add salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes.
g) Flour your hands and make a pocket of potato and add finished cooked filling. *Before adding filling make sure to thin out the pocket of potato in your hand as much as possible. If you wrap it before thinning, your final product will have a very thick exterior.
h) Close it up and roll it in egg. Afterwards flour it and fry it. Fry it for around 5 minutes or until it has turned a crispy brown color.
i) Take out your fried creation let it cool for a few minutes.
j) Add to final plate and enjoy!
Ciao for now! 🙂
