Rosti

I made this a few weeks ago for lunch. I had a couple of potatoes that I need to get rid off fast. Finally came out with this and the kids and hubby like it alot. There wasn't enough for everyone ..hehe


rosti



This is generally a versatile dish. You can eat it with grilled fish or top it up with sour cream. Great to eat it hot.

For this recipe, I used egg and flour for binding. But you can omit them if you like.

Ingredients
4 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded (Use the grater with the largest holes)
salt & pepper
1 egg, slightly beaten
1-2 tbsp flour
some olive oil

Method
1. Squeeze the water from the shredded potatoes
2. Sprinkle salt & pepper to your taste onto the potatoes and mix till well incorporated
3. Pour egg mixture and mix it till well blended
4. Sprinkle flour and mix it well
5. Heat pan and pour a little bit of oil
6. Take a handful of potatoes and flatten it on the pan
7. Flip over once the bottom turned brown
8. Once the rosti turns crispy and brown, dish it out on a plate and put your favourite toppings

hi yahfiq,

The sausage is very easy, I just used onions, ketchup and a bit of worchestershire sauce. Brown the onions, add the sauces then add the sausages simmer till cook. You can additional things to your taste :)

Hihi,

This is a great blog! Been looking for a rosti recipe for so long. I'm going to try it over the weekend! May I ask if there's a particular type of potato to be used for this dish? The other dishes look really wonderful too!! - Reen

Welcome Reen,

For rosti, I just use russet potatoes.

Zu, I made Rosti with sausages today for lunch. I got 6 small patties. I can't wait for my son to reach home, so ate a patty. My oh my! It's yummy. Think 6 patties is not enough for the 5 of us. I had no more potatoes to make. Lucky my daughters will be home late, so my hubby & 2 dd have to settle with bread & corned beef later. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

Regards.

Hi shan,

Thank you for your support :-) For this, you don't need to cook the potatoes.
