  2. Squeeze out the excess water from the grated potatoes. 
  3. Place the grated potatoes, onions, bread crumbs, ginger, pepper powder and salt in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Take a little portion of the potato mixture, make a ball and gently flatten it.

  6. Place the rosti on a serving dish, top it with the papya salad, garnish it with the chillies and serve. 

The chillies turned out to be too hot for me, so my hubby had my portion of chillies too! :-)
