    Watch those tian rings because they get hot. I also use them to stand in water halfway up in near boiling water to poach eggs in. Take the tian ring off when the white is nearly set and then finish poaching. Saves all that mess.

    Thank you Chef! Your tips for "squeeze out moisture" I understand well. And also other your tips " for fried potato: put in freezer before fried " So after put in the circle, one hours freezer and grill with pan, may be not so bad?

    Good stuff, but you are wrong sir. The best way to get most of the starch from the potato, soak. Not once, not twice...but three times, then dry:)...try it and see. Love your site.

    Have you ever done the s&p before the tea towel? Salt bringing out even more moisture and the mix is still seasoned.

    • Александр Денисов
      Александр Денисов 11 months ago

      Robert M I’m glad we are in agreement on something! And having a dedicated towel for squeezing potatoes is also a bit overboard imo, even considering it works well

    • Robert M
      Robert M 11 months ago

      I put salt on after cooking. If you grate the onions and potatoes, then put them in a towel and twisted the liquid out of them it will move all the liquid you need to. This method is faster and easier than salting and waiting. I agree that a starchier potato or at least something like a Youkon Gold or Russet would work a lot better and wonder why he didn't. I add a little flour to the mix, as it is how you make Latkes. I think his technique as far as putting them in a ring and pressing them a lot is bad. Make the mix and put a big spoon or two of it in a frying pan with clarified butter or a neutral high smoke point oil, press them down once with a flat spatula and fry at medium high heat for 3 -5 minutes per side. Put a little salt and pepper on right after you pull it off the stove and serve. These things are so much easier than the way he does it. I understand why you would put salt on the shredded potatoes/onions mix, but it just adds an extra step that isn't needed and you could accidentally over salt at that point too.

    • Александр Денисов
      Александр Денисов 11 months ago

      Robert M afaik the main idea behind the squeezing is to actually fry them on the pan instead of sauteing. If you squeeze them out and salt them afterwards - the juices are going to get out of the vegetables and youre gonna put wet hashbrowns on the pan. This is what he yries to avoid by first putting a fluffy mixture onto the pan and waiting for a minute or so before pressing with the spoon. If you dry after salting - you wouldnt need such gimmicks, and thats what i expressed in my first message. I also dont understand the choice of potatoes, because as far as i know the waxy potatoes release more water than starchy ones, and starch actually gives better results with the crunchiness on a pan. And yeah, i followed this recipe twice during the weekend, dont get into assumptions before asking.

    • Александр Денисов
      Александр Денисов 11 months ago

      Robert M so you dont salt them at all, thats what youre saying?

    • Robert M
      Robert M 11 months ago

      Anek(?).... I actually make a version of this myself and actually work in restaurants and cook so I know how to cook these and that they will get crispy much faster than if you didn't squeeze out the water. I don't know if you have ever cooked these or know how to cook them properly or if you are just giving out random advice without experience. Yes if you add salt to shredded veggies it will release water, but it is not needed here as it is very easy to squeeze enough water out without salting and it would take too long and impart to much salt to do it prior to squeezing.

    • Jarsky
      Jarsky 11 months ago

      my local cafe does some amazingly crunchy triangle ones. I think the way they do it is they actually rinse the potato to get the starch out, then after they dry it they press it into a big block about 3/4" thick and let it set in the freezer then take it out and cut into triangles and freeze it until reasonably firm, then deep fry them to order. i think they basically serve them from the basket so they dont steam themselves sitting on paper towel. I find when i make them at home and use paper towel they become quite soft after a couple of minutes.

    Hello. Great tutorial. Thanks. Do you know what a potato ricer is? I'd cooked institutionally 25 years and I never knew, so don't feel bad, but potato ricers extracts liquids from things. Look on AMAZON. They are perfect for getting water out of potatoes when you make hash browns. They look like long handled lemon squeezers but different, but they work wonderfully.

    • Food Busker
