The Swiss classic becomes even more of a classic with minipic

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 800g floury potatoes, e.g. Désirée
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled, cut into strips
  • 6 minipics, sliced
  • 1/2–3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3–4 tbsp. clarified butter
  • 1 tbsp. butter


Steam the potatoes unpeeled with the lid on, until they have just softened. Peel while still hot. Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.

Grate potatoes with a large cheese grater. Mix with vegetables, minipics and salt.

Heat up clarified butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Add potato mixture and fry for 15–20 minutes on a medium heat, turning regularly. Shape the mixture so that it resembles a cake, then fry for another 5–10 minutes, until a golden crust forms.

Melt butter along the edge of the rösti. Turn rösti upside down with the aid of a lid or plate. Serve immediately.
