Peel the potatoes and grate them. Then wash them well to remove the white substance(starch).

Using a clean kitchen clothe, squeeze water out of the grated potatoes.

Put them in a bowl and add flour, the egg, a pinch of salt and your preferred spices. Mix well and make shapes of your choice from the mixture.

Heat your pan and add some oil and fry your hash browns.

Remember, you are not deep frying them. So the oil shouldn’t be too much but just enough to ensure they cook well without burning.

When the lower side is brown enough, turn to fry the other side.

Now sit and devour your hash browns.
