RÖSCHTI (SWISS LATKES)
Resembling large omelettes, röschti are traditionally served with sour cream.
Makes 4 servings
7 potatoes, peeled and grated
1 large onion, grated 2 zucchini, grated
2 Tbsp. corn flour
½ hot green pepper, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste 2 Tbsp. butter
8 cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1-2 tubs sour cream
Drain grated potatoes, onions and zucchini and then pour into a bowl. Add the eggs, corn flour, pepper, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Heat one or two medium 20cm. frying pans and melt the butter. Pour in some of the batter and gently flatten so that the omelette is 2 cm. thick. You can play around with the edges to shape the omelette. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove and place on paper towels. Continue to make more until all the batter has been used. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and cucumber slices.
