Crispy Potato Fritters

We call it "Rösti" in Austria. I´m not even sure whether this is viennese dialect, but this fritter is simply heavenly to eat especially when crispy and hot. There are a couple of things to consider preparing this by-dish....don´t worry steps are simple and the secret to making crispy potato fritters  is choosing the right type of potato.

I prefer to use the ones for french fries. As there are so many sort of potatoes available in the market, you really really have to get the ones that are used for french fries..

Ingredients: ( Makes 4 fritters)

4 big potatoes (ask for the type used for french fries)
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
   salt and pepper
   cooking oil


1. Peel potatoes and grate on a clean cloth or if you prefer, you can use the shredder accessory of your

2. Extract the liquid-out of the potatoes by wringing the cloth tighter until no more
    liquid comes out.

3. Place the shredded potatoes in a bowl, add the betaen eggs + the rest of the
    ingredients.Season with salt and pepper and the ground garlic.

4. Fry in a pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil for about 2 minutes each side or until both
    sides become crispy and golden brown in color. Arrange on a platter and serve hot..
    May go with any grilled meat or can also be enjoyed as a snack with any sauce, mayonnaise...

Enjoy cooking!
