Potato With Meatballs 马铃薯与肉丸


This is one of my childhood favourite. My mum cooked this quite frequently when I was a kid. I used to eat only the meatballs until I learned the benefits of potato. Well, my mum has several version of this dish. She played around the potato and meatballs. Sometimes, she deep-fried the meatballs and potato. Sometimes, she just fried the meatballs, and at times, she just cook potato and meatballs from raw. Despite of the different methods, the dish turns out to be delicious. 

As for my version, I pan-fried both the potato and meatballs. Remember about the meatballs that I prepared up-front? I moved it from freezer to to fridge just before I left to work. It'll will be ready to cook when I come back home. I want my cooking to be therapeutic instead of problematic after long hours of working.

it's such a fine line between enjoyment and irritation isn't it. They are almost in the same spectrum of emotions just on different ends- especially when it comes to cooking. Look at how organise you are!!! I would love to have these for dinner anyday.

Looks so good! Delicious with rice, or if nobody is peeping, I'll just pop one or two meatballs in my mouth first! :)

I am first time here and love the way you cook and photograph food, especially this one! Perfect and very nutritious for the kids...I prefer meatballs for my toddlers since these are easier to chew!
