Halal Japanese Potato Salad Cake
7 Aussie Potatoes
2 Hardboiled Eggs
3 slices Chicken Ham
3 Crabsticks ( shredded )
3 sprigs Spring Onions ( chopped )
¼ Onion ( chopped )
2 tbsp Corn Kernels
3 tbsp Heinz Salad Cream
4 tbsp Japanese Mayonnaise
5 Green Chillis
2 slices Red Capsicum ( diced ) * optional
2 Tomatoes ( just the skin to make the roses )
1 tsp Salt
Pinch of Grounded Black Pepper
( Tomato Flowers )
Rinse tomatoes. Using a sharp knife, remove the skin gently without breaking them. Roll it till it forms a rose.
Don't waste the tomatoes. Chop the rest of the tomatoes to make a salsa etc. These mussels taste really good with the tomato salsa in this Seafood Platter, another version I had cook for my family.
( Ham Flowers )
Rinse green chillies and cut about ¼ from the bottom. Use a knife to make patterns to form the base of the flower.
Cut ham into half. Roll it and insert it gently into the flower base and you will have a pretty flower.
( Potato Cake )
Remove carrot skin and rinse. Using a vegetable peeler, make 4 thin slices. Also cut out some carrot flowers for decoration.
Wash and boil potatoes for about 20 minutes, or till you can insert a satay stick in. Transfer to cold water and gently remove the skin.
Set aside 2 potatoes and cut into cubes. Mash the rest.
Add salt and pepper and mix potato well.
Dice the eggs and mix with salad cream.
Mix egg and potato mixture together. Stir in onions, cut ham and corn kernels.
Throw in shredded crab sticks and potato cubes and mix well.
I had some leftover capsicum from making hearts for my egg muffins, so I decided to throw them in here to add more colours. Using your hands, try to mould the potato mixture into a square on a serving plate.
Next, add chopped spring onions on the 4 sides of the potato cake.
Place the 4 carrot slices on the cake; they act as the ribbons.
Add the carrot flowers and tomato roses to beautify the salad cake and start impressing your guests!
