Focaccia is appreciated at home so I decided to “Fire my Oven this April” make another one. This time I choose Focaccia Pugliese or rather Potato Focaccia Pugliese.

 This did not look appetising and so I was worried if the girls will eat it. Needless to say I worry unnecessarily.

Will love to see you #FireUpYourOven" to make this delicious Focaccia Pugliese or Potato Focaccia Pugliese.

 Focaccia Pugliese or Potato Focaccia Pugliese

Recipe Source: My Diverse Kitchen
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 ¾ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 ½ tsp honey
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil plus extra for brushing and drizzling
  • 4 medium sized potatoes
  •  Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary (use fresh if you have it and half the amount)

Method:
  • Peel and slice the potatoes. I used the slicer and sliced the potatoes.
  • Par-boil them in a little salted water as we will be using salt later. 
  • Drain and pat the potato slices dry. Keep aside.
  • Dissolve the yeast and honey in about 1/2 cup of warm water and allow to proof (about 5 to 10 minutes).
  •  Put the flours, 1/3rd tsp salt, 1 tsp rosemary (if using dried herbs only) and oil in the bowl and mix well.
  •  Add the yeast mixture and knead, adding just enough water to obtain a smooth and elastic dough. It should not be sticky.
  • Make a ball out of the dough and Place it in a well oiled bowl and roll the dough in the bowl to coat it with oil.
  • Cover with a cling film and allow to rise till double (about half an hour).
  • Oil a rectangular tin (I used an 11" by 7" tin).
  • Gently deflate the dough and knead a couple of times.
  •  Using your fingers press the dough out to cover the tin in uniform thickness.
  •  Continue using your fingers and dimple the top of the dough. Brush the top of the focaccia dough with oil.
  •  Sprinkle the rosemary (fresh or remaining 1 tsp dried) and then arrange the potato slices to cover the surface of the dough.
  • Sprinkle salt (if using) and freshly crushed black pepper.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise for about an hour. Bake the focaccia at 220°C for 30 minutes till the potato starts browning and the focaccia is a nice brown colour and sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Serve warm as it is, or as a snack/ appetizer or maybe with soup or as part of a meal.
