My first time eating potato rosti was when I went to Switzerland to visit Pat. Eaten with ketchup it tasted delicious and until now I still love it.
So i tried making it yesterday for breakfast. Just whipped it up myself without any recipe. Taste turned out OK but I guess although lack of ingredients to make it mouth-watering.
To make potato rosti, I was supposed to use a grater to coarsely grate the potatoes. However, I don't own a grater at home (making mental note to get one asap!), I used the kitchen knife to just chop the potato into small pieces.
Then I rinsed it under cold running water to remove the 'slimy juice'. Then I just went to pan-fried it with butter and salt and pepper to taste.
You can actually add bacon pieces and onions to compliment it but I'd ran out of them so I just made plain potato rosti.
Potato rosti is supposed to be golden brown and slightly burnt. But because we are feeling rather 'heaty' these days, I removed them from the pan before it got burnt. So we ended up eating not-so-golden-brown potato rosti.
Peter says it tasted good....so I guess it was quite successful!
I served it with a piece of wholemeal bread with half a piece of cheese (which Peter refused to touch!) and also 1 pc of left-over mini banana raisin muffin. Also served with a mini glass of cranberry juice and fresh milk.
Another wholesome breakfast, don't you agree?
