  1. Bring a large pan of cold water to the boil. As soon as the water starts to boil, remove from the fire and poach the cod for 10 minutes. Drain and flake the fish.
  2. Wash the potatoes. Boil them for 30 minutes starting with cold water. The potatoes should be cooked through.
  3. Drain and peel the potatoes, then mash them.
  4. Sift the flour, make a well in the centre and gently stir in the water while mixing the mixture to obtain an even batter.
