1 large russet potato, cooked and mashed
2 tbsp. oil/butter
Salt, to taste
35 skinned and roasted almond halves
1 tsp. red chilli powder / paprika
1/4 tsp. turmeric (optional)
1/2 tbsp. cornflour (optional)
Step 1: Mix All the Ingredients
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients with a fork, mashing as you combine till it forms a soft dough.
Step 2: Shape the Fingers
Take about 1 tsp of potato dough in your palms, roll into a 'finger', tapering the tip and flattening the bottom. Place an almond half in place of a 'nail' and use a small knife to score 'knuckles'. Place onto a large baking tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat until you run out of dough.
Step 3: Bake!
Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F/200°C for 20-30 minutes until browned on the bottom, soft and gooey on the inside. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
