Rosti is a traditional Swiss potato dish that can be served as a crispy side dish or even as a snack. It was originally a common breakfast eaten by farmers in the canton of Bern, but today is eaten all over Switzerland and also in many restaurants in the Western World. Many Swiss people consider rösti a national dish. Today, rather than considering it a complete breakfast, it is more commonly served to accompany other dishes. (Wikipedia)
I made a healthier version of this Rosti. They are normally pan-fried after mixing the potatoes with oil. I adopted the recipe from Dhivya's blog after making a few changes. Instead of using the muffin pan the rostis can also be baked using a normal baking sheet. The rosti tasted good by itself and can also be had with ketchup.
Potatoes - 4 to 5 large ones
Onion - 1 small sized
Butter - 3 tablespoons
Cheese (optional) - 3 spoon shredded
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Boil the potatoes along with the skin for about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the potatoes to cool.
Peel the skin and grate the potatoes along with the onions. Mix in the butter, cheese, salt and freshly ground pepper. The pepper enhances the taste of the rosti. At this point other ingredients like cheese, olive oil, chilli powder etc. can be added to suit your taste buds.
Take a greased muffin pan. Spoon in the potato mixture evenly.
Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes until they turn golden brown.
Serve warm! It is that simple!
