I would use boiled or fried potatoes inside other recipes like the Spanish tortilla which has usually a salty taste. Depending on how I cut the potatoes however, sometimes there is too much contrast between how salty mix and the potato chunks.
I wonder if there is a way I could salt the potatoes correctly before adding them to de mixture.
For instance, for the tortilla I mention, the spuds are cooked in olive oil for about 30min. Adding salt to the oil while cooking had little effect. I was thinking about leaving them in salty water for a while, but that would take a long time and pre-boiling it, doesn't seem to fit the recipe.. so..?
Add the salt in te bowl of egg and potato mixture, right before pouring the mix to the pan. You don't salt the potatoes you salt the whole tortilla.
Even if you use onion. The onion inside the Spanish tortilla tastes always sweet.
Ratte potatoes) in a pressure cooker with salt. The potatoes are easy to find (at least here in France), and are quite small: about 5 cm in length. After scrubbing them but leaving the skin on, he put them at the bottom of the pressure cooker, with a little water and quite a bit of sea salt. After a small cooking time (which I estimated at 5 minutes), the potatoes were cooked just enough..., there was too much water, and I ended up with regular pressure-cooked potatoes floating in salty water. The third time, I overcooked and while there was no excess of water, half the potatoes has exploded
I made a ginger carrot soup with coconut milk but accidentally made it too salty, how do i fix it? From some google searches - one said to put raw potatoes to absorb the salt. I am not sure if that will work for the soup as it is a thick carrot soup. Adding water would make it watery. Does anyone have any other methods that would work for me? I would like to keep the soup thick. Thank You Edit - the butternut squash worked for me!
I'm making a vegan vegetables soup (i.e no powders or prepared stock - just fresh vegetables and fresh spices), and I'm not sure how much salt to put in to just bring out the flavor without getting the stew actually salty. Any rule of thumb that I can use? I heard that potatoes absorb saltiness so you have to add extra salt when cooking with potatoes.
We make our own tortilla chips by sectioning up tortillas and baking them in a bit of oil and seasoning at about 375˚ F for 12 minutes. The outsides get nice and crispy but the insides of the thicker chips stay fairly soft. I'm wondering if it would be wisest to try to increase the temperature and decrease the time or vice versa. I suppose I'm essentially dehydrating the chips so my instinct is to decrease temperature and increase time. Thoughts?
in the unsalty brands, as my friend thinks? EDIT: One thing, I noticed: The salty tahini is runnier. 2nd EDIT: After reading @Jefromi's comment, I've looked at the ingredients. Salt is not listed and I doubt, that I would taste 1/1000th of salt in the tahini. Surprisingly the less salty tahini contains 11 times more sodium than the salty one, which makes me wonder, if the salty tastes comes... contained very salty tahini. At first, I even thought, the salty ones were contaminated with some inedible chemical. But then a friend from the Middle East told me, that he sees them as the original
for 12-16 hours. In the morning chop a few potatoes and place in a baking dish. Cut about a half a onion and mix with the potatoes. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil and some thyme roast in the oven... water * 1 1/2 teaspoon salt * 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast * 1 cup roasted potatoes and onions Method The night before you want to make this bread add all the "night before" ingredients together... and elastic. Plus, a little on the sticky side. You will need to knead the dough for about 8 - 10 minutes. Take the dough and flatten it out a little. Add the roasted potatoes and onions to the top
I take a tumbler with an ounce of water and add a teaspoon of salt to it and then add this salty water mix to the curry or dish I am preparing at the moment. I repeat with lesser quantities of salt with each iteration until the dish tastes good. However this approach means adding salt multiple times, before the salt feels right. Not that repetition is bad, but I find people who sprinkle salt either by years of experience or by muscle memory tend to be much better with salt. What approaches do you follow for adding the perfect amount of salt?
I just finished a burger that I got at a local butcher/deli. The burger was half ground chuck and half apple wood smoked bacon. It was delicious. The only problem I have with it is that it was very salty. I do not know if the butcher added any additional salt, but assuming he did not, how would go about making my own version of a half ground chuck/half ground bacon burger less salty? This is assuming all of the salt is coming from the bacon. There was also a slice of American cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on it.
After heading to my trusty Indian market yesterday I was speaking with the owner about how awful fenugreek seeds are uncooked. He suggested (with black mustard seeds and cumin seeds) to throw them in the pan with a little bit of oil. I've read much about people extolling how good the dry heat is for the spices. Personal experience tells me that adding oil to the pan works better. Does cooking with oil change the flavor of a spice while toasting? Are there any spices that it is important to toast without oil?
