I love hash browns/hashed browns/hash. I love crispy bits of a shredded potato, seasoned to perfection.
This idea came to me when I making curry potato filling for curry puffs (yes, that’s my pic on Wikipedia). I had to give it a go. I don’t think I’m ever going back to plain hash browns.
We picked up some store bought frozen hashed potatoes, rinsed them in water to thaw/separate them and then threw them in the salad spinner to dry out. This step is important if you want the crispy bits.
I put a couple of tablespoons of oil in a skillet and placed the hashed potatoes in. As the mixture cooked and browned (tee hee), I sprinkled some curry powder and a nice huge pinch of salt. I cooked it until it crisped up and got all golden brown.
Scrummy, even on their own!
