Boxty (Irish potato dish)
How to Make Boxty (Irish potato dish)
- Grate the raw potatoes into a bowl. Turn out onto a cloth and wring, catching the liquid. This will separate into a clear fluid with starch at the bottom.
- Pour off the fluid and scrape out the starch and mix with the grated and mashed potatoes.
- Sieve the dry ingredients and mix in along with the melted butter. Add a little milk if necessary to make a pliable dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface.
- Divide into four and form large, flat cakes. Mark each into quarters but do not cut right through, and bake on a griddle or in a heavy pan.
