Potato Rosti (Garlic and Chives)

Hi Guys,

Following on from my last potato post, here is a beautiful easy recipe that you can tweak a hundred different ways to make it yours ! I made it with Garlic and Chives to go with the pepper steak we were having for dinner. You could alter it with Bacon, Cheese, Spinach, the possibilities are endless. How fancy would this be for breakfast with a Poached Egg on top with Hollandaise ? There goes my potato for breakfast love affair again…  I took the inspiration from MasterChef but have tweaked the recipe to make it a super easy thermo one !


400g Potatoes (3 medium)

1 Shallot (Can substitute to 1/2 onion)

1/2 bunch of Chives (about 8 stalks)

1 Clove of Garlic

1 Egg Yolk

10g Oil

10g Butter

500g Water to steam potatoes.


  1. Peel potatoes, cut into quarters and steam in basket. Add 500g of water to the TM bowl. Steam for 12 minutes varoma temp. Potatoes should be half cooked.
  2. Remove Potatoes, set aside and discard water.
  3. Add garlic, chives and shallot into the TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds speed 6.
  4. Add oil and cook for 2 minutes at 100c speed 1.
  5. Add potatos to the TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds speed 5.
  6. Add egg yolk and salt and pepper to season to TM bowl and mix through for 5 seconds speed 4. The potatoes should be well combined but still have a good amount of texture to the mix.
  7. Melt a small amount of the butter into a fry pan. I used a 12cm fry pan so I could use it to make a whole rosti. A 10cm pan would be perfect ! Otherwise you need a large pan with an egg ring. Fry for 3-4 minutes on one side.
  8. A trick is to take the Rosti out of the pan and add some more butter and then return the Rosti uncooked side down. cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • I love my nifty little pan! It cost $15 from a Kitchen Shop. And it’s very cute!! This amount of mixture made 2  very full 12cm round Rosti’s. Hubby made it all the way through his but that is not a surprise. It was too big for me ! A 10cm pan would be perfect if you can find one – Grab it!!
  • You can mix or match any range of herbs that you like. Add a nice hard or soft cheese or you could even add bacon and cabbage for a bubble and squeak Rosti!
  • I served dinner with steamed veg. So to save time and multi-task I added the veg in the varoma and steamed whilst steaming the potatoes.
  • The Potato Rosti’s came in at about $3.50 for this amount. So definitely a budget buster!
  • For a lighter option I love to serve it with a grilled chicken breast and an avocado and tomato salsa / salad.
Would love to see what you turn this recipe into and make it your own!
