Rosti is a potato-based dish of Swiss origin, where it used to be a common breakfast especially for farmers. Here, grated potatoes are mixed with a sprinkling of green chillies and cooked covered with a layer of cheese till a good aroma wafts out of the pan. Here is a slightly modified version the original rosti, with a layer of sautéed onions just below the cheese layer. Onion has a crispier texture and stronger flavour compared to potato, creating a much-needed balance, which makes this Potato Rosti more appealing than the plain version.
- Combine the potatoes, salt and 2½ tsp green of chillies, mix gently with the help of two forks. Keep aside.
- Heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till they turn translucent.
- Sprinkle the remaining ½ tsp of green chillies and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Sprinkle the cheese evenly on all the onions and spread the prepared potato mixture evenly over it.
- Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes.
- Loosen the sides of the rosti with the help of a knife, place a plate inverted on the non-stick pan and turn the pan upside down to invert the rosti on the plate.
- Serve immediately with sour cream.
- Parboiled potatoes for this recipe should be 90% cooked.
