Who doesn’t like potato? Well I myself love potatoes a lot and same is my son. Infact there are times when I don’t find anything fancy in the pantry i opt cooking some potatoes. The most humble vegetables / root that blends with almost every dish, curry, or any other vegetable. There are around thousands of recipes made using potatoes all across the world, in fact I feel where nothing grows, grow a potato. Whether its fries, chips, any Indian or International curry, a pie, sweet or savory…potatoes are just a perfect savior to all cooks in the kitchen.
Recently i won a food contest online and received a Jamie Oliver Cook Book. I am a huge fan of Jamie Oliver and receiving his book as a reward was just cherry on the cake. It’s been a month now, and i have been reading the book and wondering when will i try my hands on a recipe made by the Chef himself. So what best can be to start with a potato dish and then carry on with other marvelous recipes. So basically all i wanted was big sized oval potatoes…you guessed it right, i was about to make the most yummilicious and my son’t favorite…Hasselback Potatoes – Jamie Oliver style.
Though the original recipe has a vibrant use of Rose Mary and Gorgonzola Cheese but as my place doesn’t provide me such exotic ingredients i replaced it with our very desi Coriander, some Garlic Powder and Cheddar Cheese. The recipe is adapted from Jamie Oliver’s Cook Book but you can also find the original one on his website
