A different recipe. Potatoes in an interesting approach. Popular in some parts of Spain, but not everywhere. Now you can cook them. Let’s cook.


2 potatoes
2 eggs
3 tablespoons flour
1 bay leaf
Some salt to taste
Some freshly ground black pepper, to taste
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
Some extra virgin oilve oil

To start, wash and peel the potatoes. Cut them in pieces. Then boil them in water with a bit of salt the bay leaf. Once the potatoes are done, rinse them in cold water. Remove the bay leaf. Mix the potatoes with the eggs. Add the flour and mash everything well. Add the baking powder and some salt and black pepper. I like to add some turmeric. Just to add a bit of colour. We must get a mixture to make like a sort of croquettes later.
If it is needed, you can add more flour, but do it little by little anyway. When you have the mixture, let it rest for 15 minutes.
Then, with the help of a wooden spoon, shape the potato croquettes. Heat some oil in a pan and when it is hot, fry the Hollow Potatoes. Some minutes on one side, some minutes on the other side.
If you want, you can add some herbs to the mixture, but do not overuse herbs. Serve hot. You can serve them as a tapa or as a side. They are different and delicious. Enjoy!
