An international bestseller, the Potato Rosti is a pleasantly-flavoured, almost soothing dish of potatoes cooked in butter with onions, green chillies and cheese. The specialty of the rosti lies in the way it is cooked – as a whole layer, somewhat like a pancake.

This gives the Potato Rosti a unique texture, which is slightly crisp outside and quite succulent inside. This is what gives you a warm and comfortable feeling when you bite into it.

Here is an interesting way of cooking the Potato Rosti – in the microwave oven. It is easy and convenient and also slightly faster than cooking on a frying pan. However, make sure you serve it immediately before it becomes dry.

Making potato rosti in a microwave is something new that i came across. It was ready in no time. Though it was no so crispy, the texture and flavour was amazing. Loved it.
