Simplot, the largest potato grower, manufacturer and supplier in the world, shared their inspiring and versatile hashbrown recipes with a Malaysian twist which can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anytime in between.
Usually served as a staple choice for breakfast meals, Simplot Hashbrown is much loved for its taste, texture and crispiness. Made from real potatoes, Simplot Hashbrown is changing the cooking trend with modern mothers to showcase this freezer staple as a versatile ready-to-go ingredient that can result in dishes with added flavour and texture.
Hashbrowns can be used as a main ingredient in many dishes. It can be the filling in curry puffs, samosas, cutlets, fritters or it can be added to curries, and stir fry dishes with meat and vegetables. It is more convenient and time-saving to prepare compared to raw potato and hashbrowns add a yummy crunch to dishes.
“The sky is the limit when it comes to creating tasty and nutritious meals for the entire family with Simplot Hashbrown. The crispy, fluffy and golden-coloured hashbrowns are in most Malaysian households. Simplot is putting a twist to how hashbrowns can be enjoyed any time of the day. Best of all, Simplot wants Malaysians to taste hashbrowns with a localised flavour, which is why we brought Chef Florence Tan to showcase a variety of hashbrown recipes made to suit the Malaysian palette,” said Ong E-Laine, Manager – Commercial Marketing, South East Asia.
At the workshop, the renowned Chef Florence Tan demonstrated several Malaysian dishes made using Simplot Hashbrown. The witty chef whipped up the famous curry puff and mee rebus using hashbrown as the main ingredient.
The participants of the workshop were also invited for a hashbrown workshop – cooking up delicious meals and snacks using easy to follow recipes from Simplot Malaysia Sdn Bhd. Some of the dishes created include Potato and Vegetable Cutlet, Sweet & Sour Chicken and Malaysian-style spaghetti Bolognese with Popcorn Hashbrown. Recipes can be found on www.facebook.com/SimplotAward .
