1 In a bowl, combine milk and egg and whisk in flour. Fold in potato, onion, corn, chicken and seasoning. The mixture will resemble a dense sort of batter.
2 Heat a large frying pan and spray with cooking spray. Place spoonfuls of mixture in pan. Cook on each side until golden and crispy. Serve warm rosti with chilli sauce on the side and salad or seasonal vegetables.
Potatoes start to sprout if stored in humid conditions above 7°C, and in low temperatures the starch in potatoes turns to sugar and the flavour changes. So keep potatoes in a well-ventilated, cool, dark place – not in the fridge. A sturdy paper bag or cardboard box under the sink is an ideal place to store this root vegetable.
