This is one of the simple potato dishes I often make and it pairs well with sambar. I normally pressure cook the potatoes along with toor dal and it makes the cooking of this dish even easier. I talked about one kitchen disaster in my previous post and here is another one. I planned to make calzones for dinner last week and the first bummer was that I was out of all purpose flour. How could that even happen?
Next, I made the dough in the morning hoping it would take a while to rise given that it is pretty cold here. I probably heated up the kitchen too much because the dough started rising. Seeing that, I moved it to the basement. I should have actually placed it in the fridge, perhaps the next time. Everything was good and I punched it down once during the afternoon and left it in the basement. Around 6pm I decided to start the calzone and noticed that the dough had a sour smell and looked really slimy . I was not sure if it was still good and I was running around making the dough again. So much for trying to make it easy in the evening.
I did look up the internet and some people mentioned that it could be a sour dough starter and so on. Well, I was already exhausted and did not want to try anything new and the dough went to trash. I was sad, but I am over it
now . Off to the recipe.
