This is probably one of the most famous norwegian dishes there is. Every place their own name them. Every family their own way of serving them. "Komler" is most common along the coast line, but
you can find them all over. They are like tamales made of potatoes. Dont let their pale apperance fool you, they taste greate!
Peel your potatoes.
Finely grate them.
Add the barley flour.
Mix it well, until it is a dough. Personally I just do this with my hands, I find it easier.
As with meatballs, make them into balls. Larger than a golf ball, smaller than a tennis ball.
Put them in ready boiled water (with salt) and let them zimmer for about 40-50 minuttes.
Serve "komler" with bacon, sausage, rutabaga mash and salted lam meat. Enjoy!
Extra tips: If you make them the day before you plan to have the dinner, they will be more tasty! If thereis any left overs, you can cut them and bake them in the
owen. For extra flavor, put a piece of bacon inside them as you make them up.
