  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 150g of flour
  • 1 onion
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 carrot
  • 500g mushrooms
  • Black pepper


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Boil 3 medium-sized boiled potatoes. Allow to cool before cutting into dice. Place and mash both the diced boiled potatoes and 30 grams of butter in a mixing bowl.  Carefully pour over 50ml of milk and continue mashing. Shape the mixture into a ring with a spatula and crack 1 egg in the center.  Using a fork, scramble the egg. Then, mix into a paste-like texture using a spoon. Add 1 tsp of salt, then combine.

Sift 150 grams of flour into the bowl and combine until you have a dough-like texture.

Finely chop 1 onion.

In a preheated pan, pour the vegetable oil and add the finely chopped onion. Sprinkle in some salt to taste.  Continue to fry the onion until it is transparent or pale in color.

Grate 1 carrot. Add the grated carrot to the pan with the onions. Then, add more salt. Cook until the potatoes are golden brown.

Let it cool and transfer it to a platter.
