DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the cooked potatoes and grate them through a coarse grater.
  • Slice the onions into thin wedges.
  • Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan and add the onions and sweat them until they look glassy and transparent.
  • Add the grated potatoes and the salt and stir through.
  • Fry while stirring them around in the pan for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Press together to form a flat cake and fry over medium heat until there is a golden crust on the bottom.
  • Place a serving platter on the pan and turn the pan upside down, so the Roesti falls on the platter with the crust on top.
  • Serve immediately.
