Potato Farl

For Week 3 of BM #50, I have chosen to highlight some flatbreads from around the world. 
For Day 1 here is an Irish flatbread. There are multiple version of these farls. Typically they are quartered out of a circular pancake but I made them circular and it was a major hit with the kids.

Ingredients - 

Potatoes 3 medium sized
Butter 1 Tbsp
All Purpose Flour / Maida 3 Tbsp
Baking Powder 1/4 tsp 
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Potato Farl

Method Of Preparation -

Boil the potatoes and mash them adding salt, pepper and butter.

Sift the flour and baking powder and mix it into the mashed potato. Adjust the flavors. Knead into a soft dough.

Grease your fingers and pinch small portions of the dough. Roll into a thick pancake. (Typically it is made into 6-8 inch and made into 4 quarters. I felt it was easier to handle if the size is smaller)

Cook both sides of the pancake on a heated griddle drizzling butter as needed.

Repeat the process for the remaining dough.

Serve warm with ketchup.

Preparation Time 25-30 min
Makes 8 (3 inch circular pancakes)
