Rosti with Horseradish

Horseradish cream adds a lovely flavour to this traditonal Swiss dish.

Rosti with horseradish

Ingredients

  • 400 g potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons horseradish cream from a jar
  • 6 spring onions
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
  • fresh parsley or chives, to garnish

Preparation

  1. Peel the potatoes and coarsely grate them into a large bowl of iced water. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes, then use your hands to squeeze out as much water as possible. Press dry with a clean tea towel and place in a bowl.
  3. Add the egg, horseradish cream, spring onions and salt and black pepper to taste and mix thoroughly.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Drop eight mounds of the mixture into the pan and press down with the back of the spoon to make potato cakes 5 mm thick.
  5. Fry the rosti for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until firm and golden – you may need to cook the rosti in two batches. Drain well on paper towel and serve hot, topped with creme fraiche and garnished with parsley or chives.
