The Reci{P}e

{Poppadums, Potatoes, Pepperdews, Peas , Parmesan & Pitted olives}
This is definitely a ReciPe! Easy to remember {as most of the ingredients start with the letter ‘P’} and just as easy to make! I woke up this morning and decided that I wanted to document my post instead of just writing it. By this I mean, literally writing while cooking – and hopefully not getting my PC caught in the cooking-crossfire!

So in between doing the Monday morning washing, the blog post planning and only having my first cup of coffee at 11h30, is exactly where this post took place. As long as I keep the washing powder and the parmesan shavings separate, we won’t have a problem ;) This is what you need to do:

3 large Potatoes cut into blocks (I leave the skin on)
Pinch of salt
Pepper to taste
250g Peas (drained)
4 large Pepperdews
6-8 Pitted Calamata Olives
125ml Pick n Pay Fresh Cream
3 Plain Pappadums
Parmesan shavings (optional)
Boil cut potatoes in water with a pinch of salt for 25 minutes, until soft. Drain the water and put the potatoes in the fridge to cool down. Boil peas in water with a pinch of salt and pepper for 20 minutes. Drain and leave to cool. Cut pitted olives into halves/quarters, depending on the size you prefer. Cut pepperdews into small strips. Boil 125ml fresh PnP cream while adding cut olives and pepperdews for 10 minutes while stirring. Salt and pepper to taste.
To prepare the pappadums: the preparation instruction for pappadums vary. For the ones I used, you can either quickly pop them into the microwave or do as I did and heat a little bit of oil in a frying pan on high, place the pappadum in the pan for about 4 seconds, until the sides starts to curl up. Drain the excess oil with a paper towel.
In a large bowl, lightly mix together the cooled potatoes & peas with the pepperdew cream sauce. Spoon into the pappadums. Add a few parmesan shavings and serve! Plus {BONUS}: No need for plates when you're having Pappadums!
This winter you can keep warm and cosy with all the Winter Hotlists and competitions available from PnP.  Keep it HOT with this recipe by adding more pepperdews or chilies to the sauce if you like!
