It’s an easy and quick idea to cook an original and tasty side dish made of potatoes!
MAKES 5 BITES (diameter 8 cm)
READY IN 25’
3 potatoes, medium
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon onion, chopped
1 teaspoon potato starch
Extra virgin olive oil to taste
1 teaspoon butter
For the stuffing I suggest you:
- zucchini and fresh cheese
- speck and cheese (“Provola cheese”)
STEP 1: GRATE THE POTATOES
Peel and grate the potatoes coarsely.
STEP 2: ADD THE OTHERS INGREDIENTS
Squeeze well the potatoes, then place them into a bowl. Add salt, pepper, onion and potato starch. Blend with a spoon.
STEP 3: COOK THE ROSTI
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and a teaspoon butter. Place a spoonful of mixture in the pan and gently try to push it down to create a circular shape.
Do the same with the remaining potato (you can also use a metal chef’s ring to get a more regular shape).
Cook the potato rosti little cakes for 10 minutes on both sides (covered with a lid), until cooked inside and crispy on the outside.
A PIECE OF ADVICE: potato rosti little cakes are usually served as a side dish with meat or fish , but you can also fill them for example with grilled zucchini and fresh cheese or speck and Provola cheese… so tasty!
