This recipe for Curried Potato Cakes with Cool Apple Cilantro Dip was created by Kellie White of Valley Park, MO.
2 large Russet potatoes (about 1 ½ lbs)
1 can coconut milk
1 cup milk (2% or whole)
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons plus 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup flour, divided
6 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 cup grated apple (use a crisp tart/sweet apple)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro and extra whole pieces for garnish
Prep Time: 20min | Cook Time: 40min
Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. Put potatoes, coconut milk, 1 cup of the regular milk, bay leaves, and 1 tsp. of salt into medium sauce pan and heat to simmer. Continue simmering, on medium to medium heat, until potatoes are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork – about 18-25 minutes.
Stir occasionally to prevent scorching. Reserve ¼ cup of milk mixture then drain potatoes, but do not rinse. Move potatoes to a medium mixing bowl and discard the bay leaf. Add butter to potatoes and using a potato masher, mash until potatoes are broken down and there are no pieces left bigger than a pea. The mash does not need to be perfectly smooth. Then add reserved ¼ cup of milk mixture, cayenne, ½ tsp. salt, garlic, ½ cup of flour and egg. Stir until ingredients are combined. Mix in curry powder.
To form potato cakes, divide mixture into 12 equal portions, rolling each into a ball and dredging in remaining cup of flour. Press lightly into pancake shape (3-4” diameter) and reserve on a plate. Heat 3 Tbsp. oil in a large nonstick frying pan. Add half of patties and fry for about 5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Put cooked patties on a plate lined with paper towels.
Make yogurt dip by combining yogurt, lime juice, apple, 1/8 tsp. salt, and cilantro. Top each potato cake with dip and garnish with whole cilantro if desired.
