I’ll admit that I have relatively good success in the kitchen.
But I’ll also admit that when I fail, I fail rather spectacularly.
And in the case of the curried potato rosti I made the other night, I am not joking when I tell you it was disgusting. Inedible even.
And that is saying something as I will eat pretty much anything!
It was all going along nicely, until I added this to the grated potato…
Quite lovely – normally – but not when you follow a recipe and use 2 tablespoons of it.
So into the pan went the curried grated potato, and I was none the wiser that this dish was headed down a path from which it would not recover.
On went the eggs, and into the oven to finish cooking.
In oblivion, I served the dish (sprinkled it with chives), and we sat down at the table ready to enjoy our dinner.
But one bite in – and it was all too obvious.
Too much curry powder.
In a “burn your mouth” kinda way.
In a “that is the most revolting thing I have eaten in a long time” kinda way.
Oh well, right idea, I suppose. Just an incredibly bad execution.
Next time I think I’ll stay well away from that curry powder and just go with the rosti and eggs.
What about you? Had any kitchen fails lately?
