I love being creative especially when it comes to preparing food. There are no rules when it comes to food art, you’ve got to think “beyond the box” and always have fun while making any dish.

The best thing about “Tastie Dine” it was created specifically for easy dishes using readily available ingredients that you can acquire both from your “Mama mboga” or your local grocery store”. There is nothing complicated with my recipes, but what I cannot accept is eating dishes prepared the same way over and over again.

That is an-acceptable.

Borrow ideas if you have to. I do it all the time from different food bloggers or foodies but the catch is “Always make it your own”, by adding a unique technique to it. I cannot promise you the outcome will always come as you thought it would, but its will be a great thing that you tried.

Let’s get cooking!!

2. Season the mashed potatoes, then add in the bread crumbs and combine using your “Clean Oily” hands. Oil your hands using vegetable oil – to avoid the mash sticking to your hands. Bring it to a dough consistency.

3. Make sizable balls using the mashed dough” with your hands, flatten it out using your palms – poke a hole in the middle and set a side.

4. Pre-heat a skillet or sufuria with vegetable oil on medium high heat, as you continue coating the potato rings with flour, set aside as the oil boils.

FYI – forgot to take pics for the flour coated rings, but finally got to snap this ones before I fried them all.

5. Place them on paper towels or serviettes to drain the excess oil. Serve immediately.

Final Outcome:

Serve it with the “chilled spicy Guacamole”.

Looks delish huh!!!.

Crunchy on the outside and super flavor bursting -gooey on the inside. My colleagues are my samplers.

This is what I had for dinner – with a chilled glass of white wine. Woke up and had the same but with milky coffee. Very filling, healthy and quite a special snack or main dish.
