Swiss potato pancakes rösti (Roesti)



2 cups grated potatoes boiled a day before
2 tbsp buter
1 tbsp onion to taste
salt to taste

Boil about 3 medium sized potatoes a day before preparing and keep it in the fridge after it is cools. If potatoes are boiled and made right away it will be starchy. On the day of preparing peel the potatoes and grate using a coarse grater not a fine grater.


Slice the onions thin and leave aside. Melt the butter in a frying pan add the onions and sweat them until it is soft. Add the potatoes and salt stir. Press to make a flat cake and fry over medium heat until it is has a golden crust on the bottom. Don't stir once you press it into a flat cake.
When the bottom is golden put a plate on top and flip the pancake. Then slowly slide the pancake back on the pan with the golden crust on top and cook for about another 15 minutes pressing down on low medium heat.
The potatoes should be golden and crispy on the outside. Turn it to a plate, cut wedges and serve.
