La Vecina Gilma's -- LAPINGACHOS
Here is a classic Pastuso recipe that will give you a new way to prepare potatoes. As an added bonus – it is easy to make and easy to find all the ingredients.
1 pound of red potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
1 pound of Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
3 Tablespoons of Lard
12 green onions, cut very finely
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 Tablespoon saffron
Salt and Pepper to taste
Boil the potatoes and when done drain and mash.
In a frying pan, place lard, green onions, saffron, and salt. Cook until onions are soft.
Mix potatoes and onion mixture together and knead them together until they are well mixed. Then add eggs and mix together well.
Make little, round, thin circles – they should look about the size and shape of a rice cake.
Cook them in oil until they turn light brown. Drain and serve.
