Most of us would have known about the famous focaccia,an Italian yeasted and herbed flatbread which ressembles quite like pizza..I got hooked to this potato focaccia when i went through Aparna's Space and i tried sterday this Italian flat bread for our sunday dinner..This focaccia tastes marvellous and very tasty, needless to say that this focaccia was our recent favourite coz everyone loved it much and am surely gonna try with different veggies along with potatoes..I followed each and every step as Aparna went for and the only change i did is i went for whole wheat flour and completely skipped the all purpose flour she used for, i cooked the potatoes partially in salted water before arranging them over the yeasted dough as Aparna did..Thanks a lot to Aparna for sharing this wonderful bread and we loved it with cheese spread and salads..Sending this potato focaccia to T&T-My Diverse Kitchen guest hosted by Srivalli, event by Lakshmi, Champa's Bake Off Event & finally to Susan's Yeast Spotting..
