  1. Put the grated potato in a clean tea towel or muslin and squeeze out as much moisture as you can. Tip into a bowl with the spring onions, three-quarters of the horseradish and half the butter. Season well. Divide the mixture into 12 and shape into patties.
  2. Heat the remaining butter and a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, until foaming. Fry the röstis in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side, until cooked through and golden. Add a little more butter and oil between batches, if needed. Drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot.

Tip: For the perfect Sunday lunch, serve the rösti with roast beef and horseradish cream. Simply mix 4 tbsp soured cream with 1/2 tbsp grated horseradish.
