Hash browns are typical American breakfast food items seen here in North America.
They are often fried on a griddle(ses below) or large common cooktops. They are mostly served along with fried eggs, bacon or steak during breakfast.
3 potatoes (peeled)
1½ onion (finely chopped)
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Using a grater, grate the peeled potatoes.
Wash the potato shreds in some water and drain the water.
Using a dry, clean towel, pat the grated potato dry.
You can use a potato ricer to remove the moisture and give a crispier texture.
Place these shreds into a mixing bowl and add the chopped onions, olive oil, salt and pepper and mix well.
Take a skillet and add some butter into it. Dollop this mixture into it.
Using a spatula, separate the potato shreds into four sections and fry till the potato becomes golden brown.
