When I was very young, my parents would bring me to a restaurant called Denny’s which later closed down. Their rosti (or some would call it hashbrown) had made a great impression. Rosti treats was definitely a rare dish in Singapore and a luxury meal then.
Recently with more time spent at home , I decided to challenge myself to this dish and it came out unexpectedly successful the first time.
Classic Swiss Rosti is delicious and ingredients are easy to find. All we need is a frying pan, some potatoes, eggs, salt and cooking oil or butter. Onions goes very well with any potato dish too, but it’s optional if you dislike onions. In general, 1 Potato is roughly Rosti serving for 1 person.
For my recipe, I had used 4 large Russet Potatoes, 1 large beaten Egg , 1 large Onion , 1 tablespoon salt and Olive Oil for the frying pan.
Soak the skinless Potatoes in cool water for 20minutes to remove the starch . This is an important step as it give the potato the crisp you wish to taste. Shred the potatoes , chop up the onions and add in the ingredients. Mix them all up and it’s ready to get into the frying pan. Fry till golden brown on each side and you will get the desired classic Swiss Rosti that you have been craving for.
