Curry Potato Muffin

Today I was thinking of making something for my kids’ snack. That was when I saw my potatoes sitting at my countertop. So I thought of making something out of it. I said to myself, “why not make them into curry potato muffins? My kids love potatoes and they love curry. This will be perfect for them! “

Ingredients

  • 225g All Purpose Flour
  • 14g Baking Powder
  • pinch of Salt
  • 7g chicken powder
  • 72g red curry paste
  • 64g beaten egg
  • 280g boiled peeled potato (see note below)*
  • 30g minced shallots
  • 25g minced yellow onion
  • 55g olive oil
  • 150g coconut milk

Method

  • Mash* the potatoes leaving some bits. This is my preference, as I would love to be able to chew on some bits of potatoes. Set aside
  • Sift all the dry ingredients together e.g. flour, baking powder, salt and chicken powder. This is to prevent lumps and ensures that the micro ingredients are well incorporated. Set aside
  • Add the shallots and yellow onion into your mashed potato. Followed by all the rest of the wet ingredients e.g. eggs, curry paste, olive oil and coconut milk. Stir well to combine.
  • Add in half of the dry ingredients, stir to combine, then add the rest of the dry ingredients. Stir all to combine. Avoid over mixing as this will result in tough muffins.
  • Scoop the thick batter into the muffin cup, about 3/4 full.
  • Baked for 20-23 minutes or insert a skewer at the center and see if it comes out dry.
