Rösti with Purple Fingerling Potatoes

We used those Organic Purple Fingerling Potatoes that we got the other day, you can see that they are at least a little purple on the inside, far more colourful than the regular potato we used as well. And the purple fingerling potatoes were far more flavourful, quite good tasting. This recipe is different from the last Rösti recipe that I posted, the potatoes are not boiled before frying, similar to German Potato Pancakes, and they are fried in oil instead of butter. Quite good.

Rösti with Purple Fingerling Potatoes
2-3 medium potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
salt, to taste

Heat non-stick frying pan on medium heat, then add oil. Place grated potatoes onto frying pan and spread out till it fills pan. Season with salt to taste. Fry potatoes until bottom is golden brown, then flip over (I used two plates to flip; if you're more talented, then you can flip using just a spatula). Fry opposite side until it is golden brown as well. Serve hot as a side dish.
