4 large peeled potatoes
2/3 cup polenta (precooked dry polenta)
4 large green cayenne chillies chopped
1 cup fresh coriander (cilantro) chopped
Oil for deep frying
Boil potatoes and when cooked dry and mash roughly with a fork. Add cooked polenta, chillies, and coriander and mix thoroughly. Grab smallish balls of potato mixture and roll in to fat finger shapes. Deep fry fingers in batches, draining on kitchen paper, and serve hot with sauce/seasoning of choice.
I adapted this recipe after watching a video on one of my favourite YouTube channels called "Grandpa Kitchen". Some of you might of seen their videos as they have millions of subscribers and views. If you haven't, basically it's high quality food imagery featuring an Indian Grandpa and a few assistants cooking delicious food, but the twist being they cook it in bulk, and all outdoors on open fires with basic equipment complete with rustic surroundings sometimes with roosters and such walking through the shots. But don't let the surrounds fool, the photography (especially the close ups of the food) and production values are top shelf. At the end of each cook you get to see the kids in the local orphanage feasting on the end result. Only after Grandpa has tasted the dish first to give his approval.
Anyway, my video has none of those production values but will include it just in case the above instructions need clarifying. And full disclosure, a small amount of these fell apart during the frying, but were still edible and tasty but not so visually pleasing and didn't make the photo shoot.
