Rösti -Swiss Potato Pancake

Rösti is a swiss dish which is prepared mainly with potatoes, this dish originated as a common breakfast eaten by the farmers in the Canton of Bern, but today it is eaten all over Switzerland, also in many places...many of the swiss people consider this potato pancake as national dish than considering it as breakfast dish...Rösti is made with potatoes which are grated and depending on the frying technique, possibly mixed with some butter or fried in oil later. The grated potatoes are then shaped into rounds or patties, which come in different sizes usually measuring between 3-12 cm in diameter and 1-2 cm thick. Often the Rösti is simply shaped inside of the frying pan. They are most often shallow fried but can also be baked in the oven. Although the basic Rösti consists of nothing but potato, a number of additional ingredients are sometimes added, such as bacon, onions, cheese, apples or fresh herbs. This is often considered to be a regional touch.When Sweatha announced for AWED-Swiss, i went on searching for some swiss dishes, i just loved this potato pancake much since its quite easy , simple and also cheesy...also am sending this swiss potato pancake to AWED-Swiss guest hosted by Sweatha , event by DK also sending to EFM June- Breakfast and Variety rice series by Srilekha...



5nos Potatoes (big)
1no Onion (chopped)
Salt
Oil
1/4cup Cheese (grated)

Cook the potatoes with enough salt and water until they get half cooked, drain the hot water and put immediately to cold water, peel the skin and grate the potatoes...Heat enough oil and saute the onions with enough salt in simmer until they turns transculent, dont let them burn...add the grated potatoes to the sauteed onion, mix well... now flatten the potatoes as a cake in the pan, cook in low heat for about 15 minutes...until the base get crips, turn on to a plate, springle now the cheese over the uncooked side...drizzle few oil and again add the potato cake cook, until it get well cooked the other side...

Enjoy!!!
