Stuff to know
Cook the rosti on medium heat or they will burn before cooking through.
Use waxy potatoes since they will hold their shape better when boiling.
Peeling the potatoes after boiling keeps the starch in that you need to keep the rosti together. That’s why they are sticky when you grate them.
Rosti is a traditional Swiss dish and is often served with grilled or roast meat.
Add some paprika powder or grated cheese to the rosti.
