Happy Call Pan Rosti

One of the awesomest home-cooked Rostis.

Hi all!
Apologies for having been away for so long.
I've been uninspired for the longest time ever.
Doesn't help that this Semester is a mad one, that I barely even have time for myself!

Nevertheless, I'm been shopping on Gmarket Korea and I've got myself one of the AWESOMEST purchases! 

The Happy Call Deep Pan! (:


It's been highly raved by many and I found a really good price for this as compared to local stores.
I got mine at merely SGD$55 as compared to $108 in stores! 
That's major savings!
I even conducted a spree with my friends and we've ordered 30 pans so far!

Anyway, I did my first dish with the Happy Call Pan: ROSTI!
I'm such a huge fan of rosti and I've even tried those pre-packed ones.
However, rostis as such take up to 30 minutes to get a real good 'skin'.

With my Happy Call Pan, I took merely 10 minutes to get it cooked from scratch and even be crispy with the skin! How amazing, isn't it?

This recipe calls for 2 large or 4 medium potatoes and some household spices etc. so this is a relatively simple dish to prepare! Preparation takes about 10 minutes and it takes 10 minutes to cook.

Happy Call Pan Rosti
Ingredients: 
4 large potatoes (I used Brastagi Hertha Washed Potatoes)
2 teaspoon of Chicken Seasoning Granules
2 teaspoon corn flour
A dash of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt

Steps:


I used these peelers in a set of 3 that I purchased from Isetan. The silver one does a great job of peeling while the orange coloured one is the one ideal for shredding the potatoes. The set costs less that $12, which is a really good purchase especially since they work real well. The pink coloured one can be used to shred carrots or ginger for other dishes. 

1. Shred the potatoes. 

2. Drain the potatoes in a basket. This step is optional.

3. Season the potatoes with 2 tsp of chicken seasoning granules.

4. Season the potatoes with 1 tsp of salt.

5. Season the potatoes with a dash of pepper.

6. Add the corn flour.

7. Mix well, either using a fork or your hands.

8. Start the fire for the Happy Call Pan. 
(Only use a stove. The Happy Call Pan doesn't work for induction cookers.)

9. Add the potatoes into the pan. 
The pan need not be heated up. 
You can just add the potatoes in once you've started the fire. 

10. Flatten or spread the rosti across the pan. 

11. Seal the Happy Call Pan. 
Cook the Rosti for 4 minutes or so.

12. Flip the Happy Call Pan.
Cook the rosti for another 4 minutes or so.

13. Your rosti is done!
If you prefer your rosti to have a crispy 'skin', cook it for a while more till desired colour is achieved. 

14. Serve with sour cream or even sausages!


It takes some skill to master the flipping pan bit without distorting the rosti, but practice makes perfect!

I didn't have sour cream nor sausages at home so I had mine with tartar sauce.
It was just as good!
The rosti in the pan above consisted of 4 potatoes.
This rosti below is a revised version of 2 potatoes as 4's too much for 1 person! (:


Hope that you'll enjoy this rosti as much as I did!

    1. Hi Yin Jie!
      I got it in bulk from Korea's gmarket! The recent batches I've gotten them was at $57 as the shipping promotion ended.
      I may be holding another in April as I've shipped in 30+ pans in the recent 3 weeks. Maybe you wanna join me? (: Or if you can gather friends to order minimum of 5 pans, I can place an order for you (:

      Love,
      Cynthia

  5. Hi Shirley,

    Sorry but most probably no cos my supplier has stopped shipping to Singapore. You can try the local gmarket aka Q100. Alternatively, I hear that there are many roadshows outside NTUC etc that sells them (:
