Potato basket pizza

                                   This is my own innovation snack. Basically i like pizza and my son love's hashbrown.

I like the taste of having snack ,which had crispy ,crunchy outer layer and chewy cheesy inner layer. Kids will love it.

Potato basket :
1.Boil the potato in a cooker or in microwave . It should not cooked fully.It should be little harder.
2.Shred the potatoes and  spread it in a plate.
3.Once potatoes cools down, sprinkle some corn starch,pepper powder and salt.Milk well. If needed,can sprinkle some water and try to incorporate it.

Pizza sauce:
* Chop tomato,onion and garlic into very fine pieces.
*In a kadai,add olive oil and add onion,tomato and garlic. Fry for awhile.If needed can add little water based on the consistency needed. Once the tomato is cooked,add chilli powder,chilli flakes,oregano ,sugar and salt. Cook for 2 minutes. Once it is done, cool down and blend it with hand blender or mixie.

Final stage :
* Preheat the conventional oven to 400 degree.
* In a bowl, mix all vegetables,pizza sauce and half the quantity of cheese.
1.Take a cupcake baking pan and grease it with any spray or olive oil. Now slowly place the shredded potato in cupcake mould and press firmly to make a cup like shape. Finally using a bowl or tumbler,press the potatoes,so that the potatoes stick to the pan and correct shape will be attained.Spray some oil on top.Bake for 15 to 20 minutes,till the basket is slightly brown.
2.Once the basket is cooked, check whether the potatoes are crispy. Fill the filling in each potato basket and on top sprinkle some more cheese and few chilli flakes.
3.Bake for 20 to 25 minutes,till the cheese is melted.

Serve it as snack along with ketchup.


* Try to make the potato basket little medium thin,so that it won't be too hard to bite and not too soft.
*Those who don't have conventional oven, take a medium size metal strainer,spread it like a shape of a basket or bird nest and place a small metal strainer on top of it(one above other) and place it in medium hot oil and cook till it is crispy.once done,trasnfer to plate. Fill the filling and cheese. Keep this in microwave, till cheese melts.
* We can add any toppings needed.
* Instead of basket,we can make like pizza base using shredded potatoes and top it with pizza sauce,veggies and cheese.
