Rosti is a popular dish of Swiss origin, and it used to be a common breakfast recipe especially for farmers. Basically, rosti is a dish with potato and flour base with salt and some spices or herbs. It is one of the easiest and delectable dishes that can be made in a jiffy.

Here, we have tried something different. We have added onions, green chilies, and cheese in the potato base to give it more crunchy and flavorsome taste. This cheesy potato rosti is soft, gooey, and moist inside and crispy and crunch outside. You can devour it anytime breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
