|Turkish Hash Browns (Patates Mucveri)|
3-4 medium size potatoes
¼ tsp baking soda (optional)
4-5 sprigs fresh parsley
Salt to taste
½ cup flour
Canola oil for frying
Peel the potatoes and shred. If desired rinse the starch and drain. Otherwise drain the excess starch liquid in the bottom. Shred the onion and garlic or just use the food processor. Chop the parsley finely and combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. If you prefer crispy hash browns skip the baking soda otherwise add the baking soda for fluffy and soft hash browns.
Heat the canola oil in a frying pan and add a spoonful mixture and give any shape you like (preferably as in the picture) by pressing gently on top. Fry both sides evenly and take over a serving plate. Serve warm.
