    Pan-fried Cheese & Potato

    When I was a financially challenged Uni student, I often cooked this cheese & potato snack using a mini toaster oven. However, a non-stick frying pan works better.

    Potato Flat Bread

    A few days ago, I tried ‘Savoury Potato Pancake’ recipe that I found on a Japanese cooking site. I would not approve the recipe. The grated raw potato has an unpleasant smell and the cooked potato pancakes still have the smell. You got to get rid of the smell. Then I started trying to make …
