Norwegian Potato Lefse | Norwegian Flat Bread

Today's breakfast recipe is from Norway. When i searched for some flat bread , i found this Norwegian Potato Lefse recipe, it's very easy to prepare & requires only basic ingredients from our pantry.Mostly it made from leftover mashed potatoes, but i prepare fresh one to make this.Lefse is popular in Norway around the festival time like Thanks giving & Christmas. There are so many variation in making this, but i stick to the basics.To know more about lafse , read here

Norwegian Potato Lefse

Preparation Time : 8 hrs for resting | Cooking Time : 20 minsServes :
Recipe Category: Breakfast | Recipe Cuisine: Norwegian
Recipe source - here
Potato - 2 nos (medium)
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup
Cold Butter - 2 tbsp
Salt to salt
Milk - 2 tbsp

Cook the potatoes in pressure cooker for 3 whistle . Once it cooled, mash the potatoes without any lumps and cut into the butter, add milk & salt and mix it well.Keep this in refrigerator for overnight.Some recipe suggest to keep the potatoes in refrigerator for 3 days before use and some other suggest to keep in refrigerator until the potatoes get firm.

On the next day, add the flour(when you are ready to make the bread) into mashed potato, start with 1/2 cup of flour and add more if needed to form the dough. I forget to add the salt previous night, so added now.Make small balls from the dough, take a small in the dusted floor & roll into thin sheets.I couldn't roll as much thin as suggested, it's tear apart easily, so mine is bit thick.Heat the tava with butter, put the rolled sheets & cook on both side until the brown spot appears.While serving, sprinkle some sugar & sugar and roll it up. You can serve this with any type of jam or peanut butter. We had some leftover lefse and we had it with mushroom masala, it tastes amazing. I think that the slight sweet in the bread goes well with any spicy indian curry.
  • Original recipe calls for heavy cream, but i used milk.
  • Add just enough flour to make the dought, dont add too much flour.
