Roesti Potatoes Print Email

Roesti is best made with russet potatoes boiled the day before. Serves 4.

2-3 Russet potatoes
1/2 cup vegetable oil
salt & pepper

Boil whole potatoes until tender (45-60 minutes), cool and transfer to refrigerator to chill completely (works best if cooked the day before). Peel, and grate potatoes coarsely.

Heat vegetable oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium flame. Add potatoes, salt and pepper; stir to mix evenly. Fry / saute until a golden brown crust starts to form, shaking pan regularly and flipping about 3 times.

Press down evenly. Add 2-3 TBS water, cover and reduce heat to low. Let potatoes form a brown crust over low heat for 10-15 minutes.

Serve on a hot dish or spoon directly to plates. Serves 3-4.
