Paneer Potato Rösti (Indian Touch to Swiss Dish)

One evening I did not have much time to cook and wanted to make something simple yet filling for dinner, so I found this Indian version recipe for Paneer Potato Rösti.

Rösti is a famous Swiss dish made primarily with potatoes, is a common breakfast item, and goes along best with sour cream (just like mashed potatoes do).

I did not have sour cream at home and had no time to hang curd to use it in place of sour cream, so after making this paneer-potato rösti when I did not know what to eat it with, I put random stuff on the plate just for the sake of a colorful and full meal.  Yet, the vegetables and fruits went along well, as you can see in the photo. 

And wait, don’t be fooled by the picture – this paneer and potato rosti is not aloo paratha in any way!

What You Need for Paneer-Potato Rosti:
½ cup grated paneer
3 parboiled potatoes
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped green chili
¾ cup grated cheese
2 Tbsp butter
Salt & Pepper as per taste

Let’s Begin!
  1. Peel the parboiled potatoes & grate coarsely.  Sprinkle salt and pepper on top & keep aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large flat frying pan.  Add onion and sauté for a minute until translucent.  Add green chili + paneer and cook on a slow flame for a few seconds, add cheese + potatoes & mix, bringing it all together like a patty (doesn’t really have to be a circle!) as big or small you want – pressing it to as thin or thick you like.
  3. Flip & cook both sides until slightly crisp & light brown.  Try to slide it onto your plate in one piece.  Serve the rosti hot with sour cream, or with random stuff like I did...
-        Green chili is in minute quantity; you hardly feel the spice.  This is more of a simple bland dish & that’s how Paneer Potato Rosti should taste like, unless you’d like it spicy you may adjust the green chilies!
-        Salted/unsalted butter doesn’t matter; just adjust the salt later accordingly.
-        You can also add basil, thyme, or parsley and/or garlic powder/paste for enhanced flavors.
-        It is optional to add 2 Tbsp milk – it helps though if your patty does not seem to stay together.
-        You could also cook it 70% in pan & then bake in oven for 10 minutes at 3000F.
