Nah - why buy a box full of palm oil - do your own, it's so easy. Boil potatoes in skins, cool a bit and lift off peal. Grate on coarse grater- put oil in bottom of frying pan and warm to frying point - lay grated pots on top, and do not stir! After a few minutes, use a large plate to turn over then slide into pan again. A few minutes, without stirring - and done.

I prefer home-made as well
Maybe this video helps:

LOL - go for it and use the box this time. Then try the 'proper' way next time and tell us how you got on.

Around here some of the mountain cafés now serve Roeschti pizza.
Follow my method (just as in video) - then place any fillings on top, mushroom, ham, peperoni- whatever you fancy - put grated cheese on top - then put the pan under the grill until crisp. (with door open and handle out - or turn over onto a round pizza tin and close the door). Easy peasy

If you don't want it soggy, cook for longer then the packet says.

Hmm, Soggy Rösti, new grunge band from Graubunden?

Ya, before pressing down with a spatula, I think next time I will cook on 8/10 for the first 7 minutes instead max for 5...

Mein Roesti geschmeckt gut, but it wasn't the wonderful shape and colour that was on the box...4/5 for taste but 1/5 for shape, maybe should have used a smaller pan...

Re: I'm making ready to fry Rosti-First time

My main objection to all those per-packed frying stuff, is that they contain lots of palm oil - not healthy and also a disaster for the environment.

I checked the ingredient list, no palm oil...It uses canola oil instead; I don't like the use of palm oil either due to the destruction of orangutan and monkey habitats in Indone/Malaysia for palm oil.

Re: I'm making ready to fry Rosti-First time

I find it important to buy the correct potatoes, and I use "Brat butter" or Ghee for a better flavour.

If you stir fry the Rösti for five minutes, and then gather up the edges of the Rösti with a spatula and shape it, & then turn it over, you will find the inside is cooked better.
