These potato rostis topped with taramosalata are the perfect snack, canapé or starter. I love how the crispy rosti work so well with the smooth and delicately flavoured taramosalata, spicy chilli and cooling mint.
The rostis are surprisingly easy to make and require all of 4 ingredients. They also cook really quickly because of their size so if you have to feed a crowd, simply get two frying pans nice and hot and you can cook double the amount of rostis in half the time. I didn’t use a specific recipe so I’m just going to walk you through the process. For every 2, large potatoes, you will need half a red onion and 2 tablespoons of flour. Simply grate the potatoes (I leave the skin on) with the red onion. Add the flour and a generous seasoning of salt and mix well. Fry spoonfuls of the mixture in a hot frying pan in canola oil until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with dollops of Mediterranean Delicacies Taramosalata, finely sliced chilli and a mini-mint leaf. Be sure to serve these petite pleasures with lots of bubbly!
