Polenta Rosti

To make a polenta rosti, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of instant polenta
  • 4 cups of water or vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil (for frying)

Here’s a step-by-step guide to making polenta rosti:

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water or vegetable broth to a boil. Add salt and pepper to season the liquid.
  2. Slowly pour the instant polenta into the boiling liquid while continuously whisking to prevent any lumps from forming.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and cook the polenta, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes or until it thickens and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  4. Once the polenta is cooked, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly until it becomes firm and can be easily handled.
  5. Take a handful of the polenta and shape it into a round or oval-shaped patty, about 1/2 inch thick. Repeat this process with the remaining polenta, forming individual rosti patties.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat.
  7. Carefully place the polenta rosti patties into the heated skillet and cook them for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  8. Once both sides are nicely browned, remove the rosti patties from the skillet and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  9. Serve the polenta rosti hot as a side dish or as a base for other ingredients such as grilled vegetables, sautéed mushrooms, or a poached egg.

Remember, the cooking times may vary depending on the brand and type of polenta you use, so it’s always a good idea to follow the instructions on the packaging as a guideline. Enjoy your homemade polenta rosti!
