Crisp Potato Rösti | Swiss Dish

by Milena

Ingredients needed for the Potato Rosti

  • 3 large potatoes around 500 gr
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tbs chickpea flour or other flour
  • salt by taste
  • black pepper by taste
  • 4 tbs olive oil

Rösti is a simple, mouth-watering Swiss dish, which consists mainly potatoes. This is a basic recipe for vegan rösti, but if you’re not vegan and have no issues with having cheese you can add some cheese if you’d like to.

Here in Bavaria, where I live the Röstis are very often a side dish or even a dessert – this is something I will never get used to. Eating potato rösti or rosti for dessert with some apple mousse is not my thing at all 🙂

I used carrots in the potato mixture for a little color and served with a mix of fresh leafy greens.

Instructions
  1. Peel and grate the potatoes and the carrot. Add salt and leave for 5-10 minutes until the water separates.
  2. Squeeze the excess water out of the potatoes, using a big strainer. Another easy way to strain off shredded potatoes is by wrapping them in a kitchen cloth and squeezing.
  3. Add black pepper, chickpea flour, nutmeg and mix together.
  4. Heat 2 tbs olive oil in a frying pan, add half of the potato mixture and press down. I make two big röstis with the size of the pan I’m using, but if you’re not sure you’ll be able to flip them or you don’t have a suitable spatula, I suggest you make them small-sized and use the potato to make 4 röstis. Fry on both sides until golden.
