#3: CARROT AND YOGURT SALAD
Peel the carrots, grate them and stir with yogurt, salt and 1 tbsp. salad oil, keep it in the fridge. If you want you can also add some fennel seeds.
#4: POTATO RÖSTI
Important: Make a test rösti!
Heat 3-4 tbsp frying oil in a pan and add the potato mixture into sizzling oil, reduce the heat and fry the rösti from both sides, every side takes about 3-5 minutes. You should be able to make 4 to 6 rösti.
Serve the rösti with the cold yogurt and the braised onions, when still warm.
