They can be a little fiddly to make, but once you get the hang of it they are really easy. When making them for the first time, I recommend scooping out a small quantity.
I use two soup spoons to lift out the mixture, then flatten the mixture in the pan using the back of one. If you notice that it is sticking, or the rosti isn’t holding together when you attempt to flip it, you may need to increase the heat.
Once you have a feel for it, you should be fine!
Also, You may need to increase or decrease the heat depending on your fry pan (eg non stick, stainless steel etc) and cook top (gas, ceramic etc)
Allow to cool first before placing in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
If you are going to freeze, then allow to cool first, then freeze on a baking tray before placing in a freezable container or zip lock for up to 3 months. To reheat, first thaw overnight in your refrigerator, then place on a dry frypan on low heat until warmed through.
