Instructions
  1. Wash and peel potatoes. Grate them using a thick grater. Once grated, transfer them into a sieve over a large bowl, and sprinkle salt on top so water is drawn out of the potatoes, leave for 10 minutes.
  2. Toss the mix with pepper and additional spices (if using), and mix well with your hands, squeezing out water as much as possible, form into individual hashbrown shapes (ideally 1/2 an inch thick).
  3. Heat oil in a deep fryer or frying pan, about 1 inch deep, once oil is hot, add the hash browns and cook till golden brown on a medium heat, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Cook in batches of 2-4, depending on the size of your pan/fryer, once cooked, place to drain on a bowl of kitchen towel. Serve while warm with baked beans, or enjoy with your favourite dip!
Recipe Notes

Draining the potato of water is important, if you don’t, the hashbrowns will more than likely fall apart.

Other recipes call for egg to be used as a binder, the removal of the water from the potato makes this obsolete!

To bake instead, set the oven to 200 degrees celsius and bake for 3-5 minutes each side.
