A new take on an old recipe. The sesame seeds provide a crunchy but not overpowering flavor. You can serve these with an interesting Asian-inspired dipping sauce and it changes the aspect of the whole dish. I found this on mealsforyou.com
- 1 3⁄4 lbs potatoes
- 3 tablespoons flour
- salt, to taste
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 3 tablespoons oil, for shallow frying
- chopped fresh chives or chopped fresh parsley leaves, garnish
- Cook potatoes in boiling water 10 minutes or until they begin to soften.
- Drain and cut into 1/2" slices.
- In a bowl, mix flour, salt and pepper.
- Toss potatoes to coat.
- In another bowl, mix egg and milk.
- In a third bowl, place the sesame seeds.
- Heat oil in frying pan; fry potato slices in a single layer for 2-3 minutes on each side.
- Serve hot, garnished with chives(I like the oniony flavor) or parsley.
I'm giving this four stars only because it seems to be missing a step in the directions...like dipping the potatoes in the egg mixture and sesame seeds...btw...I had to use lots more seeds to cover all the potato slices...also my potatoes were a tad bit underdone...so you might want to cook them longer in the boiling water...I didn't want to fry them to long or they would have gotten to dark...with all that said these were very tasty...we really enjoyed them as is...even ketchup loving hubby ate them plain...thanks for posting it...=)
