Step by Step Instruction
There are 3 things to do when making this delicious potato cheese bread: Making the Flour; Making the Fillings, and Assembling the Bread.
I. Making the Flour
- Firstly, I combine the white flour, salt, milk, and unsalted butter in a large bowl.
- I mix and then knead it till it becomes smooth and turns into an elastic ball. Set aside.
II. Making the Potato Filling
- I pour water into the cooking pot and place the potato there.
- Once the potato is boiling, simmer it for 15 minutes or until it becomes soft.
- Next, I drain the water from the potato and wait till it cools down.
- Lastly, I transfer the potatoes into the bowl and mash them till it becomes soft. After that, I added salt and mayonnaise and mix it again till smooth. Set aside.
III. Assembling and Cooking the Bread
- In this part, I placed the dough on the clean table and roll into an 8-10 inches circle. The exact measurement depends on you.
- Next, I added the shredded mozzarella cheese in the center and then spread the potato filling above the cheese, followed by sprinkling the shredded cheese on top of it.
- To close the dough, I folded the edges and then bring it toward the center as shown in the picture. Make sure you pinched the dough to completely cover the filling.
- In this part, I flipped the dough bread, and gently roll it to create a smooth circular shape.
- For the cooking part, I brushed the pan with vegetable oil and then place the bread on it.
- I let it cook on low heat for 3 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Here, I brush the above dough as well before I flip to the opposite and repeat the process.
- Once done, transfer into the wood serving board and let it cool down.
Notes: As you can see, I cut into 8 pieces of bread
- If you like garlicky flavor, you can add 1 teaspoon of garlic paste or 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, and mix it with the potatoes and mayonnaise.
- You can add green leaves like chopped parsley to the potato filling to make your bread nutritious.
- When brushing the dough bread before cooking, you can use egg yolk or unsalted butter instead of vegetable oil
