Not everyone has these ingredients ready in their cupboard, and we would love it if you return after gathering the necessary supplies below:
1 garlic clove
½ teaspoon Korean chili powder
2 stems of coriander
Salt, cooking oil, water
If you want to learn how to make potato garlic rings, be informed that it’s not a complicated recipe but the steps require patient and cautious hands.
Step 1: Boil and mash the potato
Peel the skin and cut the potato into small cubes. We don’t need very tiny bits, but you might encounter some difficulties when you mash the large pieces.
Pour water into a pot and boil the potato for about 10 minutes. If you aren’t sure whether it’s cooked enough, use a spoon to press on it and see it for yourself.
Mash the potato with a fork until you obtain a smooth paste.
Step 2: Mix the ingredients
Coat your pan with 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and adjust the stove to low-heat mode.
Remove the garlic skin and chop the clove thoroughly.
Fry the garlic bits with chili powder and salt (optional). When you catch the signature smell of garlic, add 30ml of water. You will see a golden substance with appealing flakes of garlic and pepper.
Mix the tapioca and the mashed potato one by one. Make sure the ingredients blend evenly, and your dough is available for use anytime.
Step 3: Form and fry the rings
Chop the coriander into little pieces.
Knead the potato paste with coriander and cornstarch on a clean surface.
Pinch a bit of the dough and roll it into a flattened sheet with a thickness of 1cm.
Use cutters or glasses of different sizes to form the rings and repeat the process until you run out of dough. Don’t forget to let us know how many potato garlic rings you have made with this recipe!
Pour a generous amount of cooking oil into the pan and fry the rings on medium heat for 3 – 5 minutes. The pale rings will turn into an irresistible shade of gold (or brown, if you like your snacks deeply fried!).
Serve immediately for the best quality with ketchup, mayonnaise, or chili sauce.
We highly recommend a nonstick pan, so you won’t accidentally burn or ruin the shape of your potato rings.
Fry the ingredients with a cube of butter if you love the taste of baked Butter Garlic Potato Rings.
Place the raw rings on a tray lined with parchment and let it chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes. The low temperature enhances the scent and set a firm shape.
Use semolina if you want more crunch and texture.
You can enjoy this dish as a light snack or gobble it up with fried chicken or steak!
