كرات البطاطس الألمانية

هذه أحد الأطباق الجانبية المشهورة في ألمانيا وتقدم مع اللحم و- الصوص ، لا تقدم مع الأكل الناشف. و تقدم أيضاً كقطع صغيرة 
(بداخل الشوربة (تترك لتطهى مع الشوربة بدلاً من الماء

المكونات : 1 كغ بطاطس للطهي (وليس للتحمير ) / 3 ملاعق كبيرة دقيق / 2 ملعقة كبيرة نشا / بيضة / ملح وفلفل

الطريقة : تقشر البطاطس وتسلق في ماء مملح مغلي حوالي 25 دقيقة (أو أكثر حسب حجم ونوع البطاطس) ثم ترفع من الماء وتصفى 
نضع البطاطس المسلوقة مع باقي المكونات و نهرسهم جيداً باليدين حتى نحصل على خليط قابل للتشكيل . نبلل اليد بالماء ثم نعمل ٨ كرات صغيرة في حجم اليوسفي
في حلة كبيرة على النار نغلي الماء ونضع كرات البطاطس ونتركها حوالي ٨-١٠ دقائق حتى تطفو على سطح الماء ثم نزيلها من الماء 
ونقدمها مع الفراخ (كما في الصورة ) أو اللحم
