OMG! If you haven’t tried these before well you’re in for a treat.
You can have them with anything they compliment a steak well, they are also a great alternative to toast accompanied with 2 lovely poached eggs and some bacon for a breakfast with a twist!
They only take 20 mins to prepare and cook and I guarantee everyone will enjoy them!
Serves 2-4 people.
If you want to make a larger batch double the quantities of each.
2 large sweet potatoes
1 x egg whisked
1/2 a red or white onion
Garlic powder (optional)
Salt and pepper
1-2 teaspoons of Cajun spice
Coconut or rapeseed oil.
Note- You will also need a grater
Peel the potatoes and then grate them into a bowl.
Take the bowl over to your sink so it is nearby. Then with your hands take handfuls of potato and squeeze it tightly in your hands over the sink which will remove some water from the sweet potato. (This process will help make the rosti’s crisp up in the pan.)
Alternatively you can put the grated potato in a tea towel, roll this up and twist tightly over the sink to drain the excess.
Once you have finished this process, chop the onion finely add this to the bowl of sweet potato and season with salt and pepper.
Add the garlic powder and Cajun spices to the bowl and give this a mix.
Crack an egg into a separate bowl and whisk with a fork and add this to the mixture.
Using a spoon mix the ingredients together so that the egg coats all of the potato mixture.
Meanwhile heat a frying pan with some coconut or rapeseed oil.
Whilst the pan is warming, with your hands make balls of sweet potato mixture and add these to the pan. These can be as big or small as you want them to be, flatten them slightly with a spatula and by this time your pan should be starting to sizzle.
Fry the rosti’s on a medium heat for 10 mins turning half way through cooking time.
Once the rosti’s are golden and crisp on each side, turn them out onto kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil and serve.
Let me know what you think.
