Hash Brown / Rosti (ஹாஷ் பிரவுன்)

Hash Browns or Rosti is a type of a dosa made with???? Very hard to guess as it has no flour... The batter is actually potatoes!!! So no flour, no gluten... This one is little tricky but easy to make... It takes around 20 minutes in total from start to finish doing this... Flipping the hash browns is a real trick as this one can break easily when trying to flip. Flipping this should be similar to flipping the cake... Onion is an optional ingredient but adds a lot of taste and flavor. I got this recipe from Alton Brown’s show – Good Eats. I did not do a good justice of photographing this as we were in a hurry for eating this!!

Refrigerate the potatoes overnight is preferred... One can do without it also. Putting the potatoes in fridge increases their sugar and will make them brown better...
Use a scraper and scrape the potatoes and onions and keep aside
Squeeze all the excess moisture out by pressing with hand. There should be no moisture to get crispy outside and slightly soft and chewy inside
Once a lot of moisture is removed, use a salad spinner to remove the little bit more moisture
Heat ½ table spoon of butter in a skillet. I used Dosa tawa
Take 1/3rd of the potato mixture separately and add ¼ tea spoon salt and ¼ tea spoon pepper
Spread them on the buttered tawa with hand
Make it to a square shape and press from top to get a firm shape
Allow this to cook on medium low for around 5 minutes
Spread ½ tea spoon butter on the side that is up now and flip the hash browns by using the transfer to plate by sliding and inverting from plate to the tawa back technique
Now the hash browns are flipped. Allow the other side to cook for 3 minutes or until done
Remove from heat and serve hot as is or with sour cream, tangy sauces.
