Rosti is a potato-based dish of Swiss origin, where it used to be a common breakfast especially for farmers. Here, grated potatoes are mixed with a sprinkling of green chillies and cooked covered with a layer of cheese till a good aroma wafts out of the pan. Here is a slightly modified version the original rosti, with a layer of sautéed onions just below the cheese layer. Onion has a crispier texture and stronger flavour compared to potato, creating a much-needed balance, which makes this Potato Rosti more appealing than the plain version.
