DIRECTIONS

  • Warm a medium saucepan with 200 mL (7 oz) of the boiling water.
  • In a small jug blend the potato flour with the 200 mL (7 oz) of lukewarm water (mixing some of the boiling water with part of the cold water; the water must not be hot or it will cook the starch to form a creamy mixture. Empty the water from the warmed saucepan.
  • Pour the potato flakes into the saucepan and add the remaining boiling water, enough to fully cover the potato flakes.
  • Do not stir yet. Using a wooden spoon , stir the potato flour mixture in the jug and quickly add this to the saucepan.
  • Speed is of the essence here, as is dexterity! Stir the 2 mixtures together vigorously, pulling the dough in from the centre against the inside of the saucepan with one hand and gripping the pan firmly with the other.
  • When the dough is firm and smooth, moisten a small bowl with small quantities of the cold water and scoop the dough into this bowl, either as one large ball or individual balls, and serve with soup.
  • Serves 2
