Next in the Breakfast series is Rösti or Röschti, a Swiss dish made with grated potatoes and eaten as a breakfast dish. For making Rosti, we need to grate the potatoes as long strips and mix it with grated onions and garlic. Since you have to cook the rosti on a pan over slow heat the grated potatoes stick together and turn crispy. The typical texture is crispy outside and soft inside as you chew into it.
I served it with mayo which really made it a wonderful dish to indulge in.
Cooking Oil – 2 tbsp
Potatoes – 1 cup grated
Onions – 1/2 cup
Garlic – 2 cloves
Salt to taste

How to make the Rosti
Wash and grate the potatoes in a box grater to get long pieces. Mix it with other ingredients.
Heat a nonstick pan with oil. Place the entire mixture over the hot pan and press well to make a disc. Cook on a slow flame until it gets stiff.
Flip over and cook again till done.
You know it is done when it is nicely browned and crispy outside.
Serve with white sauce.
