Rellenos de papa

Instructions:

  1. Kick start, by nicely peeling the tomato using a quality peeler. When done! Cut them into small chunky cubes. Place them in a pot filled with water, add some salt in it (about 2 tablespoons) and let the potatoes boil on medium-flame. Keep them heating until they get soft or easy enough to break-down and mash, about 20 minutes.
  2. When it gets completed, remove the potatoes gently from the pot using a colander. Remember! Not to get to rough when performing this task, this might break the potatoes. Lay out the boiled potatoes on a tissue-lined tray, this will absorb all the excessive moisture.
  3. Furthermore, add 1 tablespoon of corn-starch, egg and butter and mash the potatoes wholly so that all gets formed into a paste.
  4. Flour your hands with a little bit of corn starch, separate ½ cup of the potato mixture and hold it in your hands. Try to press and flatten it in a disk shape with the palm of your hand.
  5. Next, add a sizeable tablespoon of peccadillo or roasted mince in the flattened-potato disk. When doing so, try to pour the peccadillo right in the center, it’ll make closing easier.
  6. Pull the edges of the potato-disk upwards and try to make a potato wall all-round the peccadillo. Just press up and around the filling and it will automatically turns into a sphere.
  7. Tightly secure the all the openings and cuts, so that the filling should not spill out during cooking. Repeat the process, until all the mash gets consumed. Make certain to dust your palms every time you make a disk.
  8. After all gets finished, take a large sized skillet and heat some oil in it. When it gets warm, gently drop the balls in it and let them fry for about 5 minutes on medium-high flame. Keep turning them during this procedure. When they starts to attain a golden-brown coat, turn off the stoves and remove them from the wok.
  9. Serve them with your desired sauce, maybe a plum-tomato sauce (https://recipearcade.com/fresh-plum-tomato-sauce/) would work great. However you can also try you own match or just eat them plain. They all works superb!!
