I had promised H a new snack if he comes home early on this lazy snowy day.. And he suddenly pinged a while later.. saying be ready with ur Surprise snack .. Will b home in 20 minutes…

Wondering wot to do?? Immediately started browsing this lovely easy vegetarian book that I picked from the library.Came across this yummy potato snack.. Rösti.But it had different seasoning like Sage leaves & thyme. Didnt have any of them.. Was planning for an alternative seasoning.. just then my neighbour Granny came over and handed over a Shortbread cookies for Chritsmas.. They were lovely
.. I was asking her to suggest me a sesoning .. and she said.. I could use Coriander and Parsley in Rösti and they will make a lovely Scandivian dish.
H thoroughly enjoyed & relished the taste .My 22 months old moster loved it for it was just melting in his mouth … Thats the verdict..
Sending it across to WYF: Tea Time Snack event organised by EC of  Simple India Food

Frying creates a lovely crispy crusty layer just apt for Rösti. They are just delicious by itself or could be served with a green salad.

INGREDIENTS:

Large Potato: 2 Nos
Chopped Coriander Leaves: 3-4 Tsp
Dried Parsley: 1.5Tsp
Cheddar Cheese: 3-4 Tsp
Olive Oil: 4  Tsp
Salt: To Taste
Freshly Ground Pepper: 1/2 -3/4 tsp

DIRECTIONS:

  • Peel the potatoes and grate on the coarse side of the grater to get the texture. Pat dry using a kitchen paper and put it in a bowl. 
  • Finely chop coriander leaves . Add the herbs to the potato mixture and mix them well. Add the cheddar cheese , required salt and pepper and mix well. 
  • Using Hands , shape a heapful tablespoon into a ball.Repeat the process with the rest of the mixture. 
  • Heat Oil in a non stick fry pan , Now add the potato cake to the pan and flatten it with a long handled turner. Fry until golden brown in a low flame. Turn the Rösti over and cook for another 10-15 minutes until golden and cooked thoroughly. 
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the potato cakes. Transfer the rösti to a serving plate and serve with ketchup or with green salad.

KITCHEN NOTES:

  • We can also par boil the potatoes before grating. I havent boiled the potatoes in this procedure.
  • Also we can use butter instead of Olive oil for a lovely butter flavour. Increase the cheese for the cheesy twist.
  • I have added Salt & pepper while preparing the potato cakes. But some people prefer to add them just over the top before serving.

Cheers

  • Dear Sandhya
    Moment the new blog notification arrived from your site, I saw the heading, put 2 potato in micro and I am reading it. I am on the right track, all spices are there, some stupid amul cheese is there ( which is neither Cedar nor Mozrella :-),
    Great simple dish in deed. ( I am tempted to put roasted cumin-chili powder but I wont, because I dont make any deviation from a recipe which i am following, in the second attempt I may )
    Have a nice evening
