Potato Rosti

Hi, I recently went to a restaurant called marche' in singapore. Iwas so amazed with this lovely dish called Potato Rosti...I tried it and loved every bite of it.

A must try for a wholesome breakfast or lunch...Also you may want to add it to the kids menu...I am sure kids will freak out if you happen to make this for them.

Enjoy the recipe now:


10 large potatoes

Olive oil if you are very health conscious otherwise

Butter if you are making for kids and want a good flavour

Salt and pepper to taste

Rosemary leaves (if available)

Spring Onion (Finely Chopped)

Sour Cream (Available at all the grocery stores easily)


1.First step is very imp..boil the potatoes carefully if you are using the indian pressure cooker just one whistle and thats done, else take a pot and put water and potatoes in it & boil for 8-14 minutes so that they are just par boiled. (Please see that the boiling shud be done to an extent that you can grate them nicely without mashing them or mixing together. You should be able to get thin strands like a flat pasta after grating).

Once boiled peel them and grate them using the biggest side of the grater ( कद्दुकस्स ) so that you get long flat pasta shaped boiled potatoes strands.

2. Heat 3-4 tsp olive oil or 1/2 cup butter until very hot in stoneware or non-stick pan.

3. Put a big spoon full of boiled potatoes and spread evenly so that it covers the bottom of the pan. Incase there is some space left then u may want to add some more grated potatoes to cover it.

4. Cook over medium heat about 8-10 minutes.

5. Flip potatoes using large spatula.

6.Cook for 7-8 minutes more on the other side till u see some reddish texture on the rositi.

7. Take it out in the plate. Garnish with rosemary leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste.

8. Real delight is if you serve it with sour cream and sprinkle some spring onions on top...

Very yummy...Must try for a light brunch..Truly amazing and awesome.
