Boxty with Mustard-Chutney Sauce

Boxty
We're having fun with Irish food this week!

Boxty is a traditional Irish dish, primarily from the North. As you might expect, it's another preparation based on the potato. It's a simple and quick dish: a potato pancake, with half the potato cooked ahead and mashed and the other half grated raw into the mix. A bit of flour holds the cake together. 

All sorts of sauces are served with boxty – tonight I served it with a mustard-chutney sauce but applesauce, crumbled sausages or just a pat of butter are also agreeable accompaniments. 


Boxty with Mustard-Chutney Sauce

Print this recipe.

Makes 8 pancakes.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound boiling potatoes, peeled
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon canola or other vegetable oil
For the sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 2 tablespoons coarse-grained mustard

Method

1. Cut half the potatoes into 1" chunks. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add the potatoes and cook for about 12 minutes, until tender. When done, drain and mash the potatoes.

2. Grate the remaining potatoes through the large holes of a box grater. 

3. Mix the grated and mashed potatoes. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. 

4. Add the buttermilk and mix well. 

5. Place the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop the potato mixture, a tablespoon at a time, into the pan. Do not crowd the pancakes. Flatten them with the spatula. Cook about 2 minutes, then turn and cook another couple of minutes. 

6. Keep the first batches warm while later batches are cooked. Serve immediately. 

For the sauce:  Mix the chutney and mustard. Serve on the side for diners to add to the boxty.
