1. Peel the potato and grate into a bowl with a coarse grater.
2. Finely chop the onion and garlic and add it to the potato. Season well. Add herbs/spices, if using. Mix in the fat and flour.
3. Heat a frying pan over medium-heat. Add a 1cm layer of oil/fat to the pan.
4. Shape the mix into rounded balls – somewhere between the a golf and a tennis ball. Press into the pan, creating a rounded thin cake, sort of Scotch pancake sized. (You can make one big, thin cake, but it’s easier to flip small ones).
5. Slowly does it, so the spuds cook all the way through. Crank it up at the end to crisp the outside (if needed). You want them crisp and golden on each side.

Lovely little recipe. I browned off some lamb in the pan before frying the Rosti (the Abel and Coles in this week's box). Excellent flavour; I used duck fat for the fat which I'm sure helped. Not quite as good as those of my German mother, but that's just aiming too high. And I think she used lard which for some reason seems frowned upon these days ...
