Hash browns or hashed browns are a simple preparation of potato pieces pan-fried after being shredded or riced. Hash browns are a staple breakfast food at diners in North America, where they are often fried on a large common cook top or grill. In some parts of the United States, hash browns strictly refer to shredded or riced pan-fried potatoes and are considered a breakfast food while potatoes diced or cubed and pan-fried are also a side dish called country fried potatoes or home fries . Some recipes add diced or chopped onions.

Apparently there is a TINY difference between the “Potato hash and the Hash Browns. 

Hash browns as indicated above are shredded and onions are added to the mixture and pan fried. Potato hash are diced into little cubes and pan fried. Well…. that is the difference I picked up. Feel free to correct me or add onto this similarity dish.

*Making “ Spicy Hash Browns“.


Prep time: 10 mins   Cook time: 25 mins    Total time: 35 mins

Serves – 2 pax



  • 4 small potatoes
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 table spoons of all purpose floor
  • 1 green bullet chili
  • a bowl of cold water
  • a clean kitchen towel or potato ricer
  • vegetable oil
  • Grater and non-sticking pan.


  1. Peel the potatoes, wash and grate and place in cold water for 5 mins. {Soaking them in water helps it to remove some of the starch – white fluids off the potatoes, this will help them get a crisp texture}.


2. Grate the onion and thinly slice up the bullet chili and set aside. After five minutes, first squeeze the water off the grated potatoes , place them on a clean kitchen towel. – Squeeze all water off and place them in a bigger bowl.


3. Add all the seasonings of {black pepper, salt, chili flakes, coriander, paprika, ginger, garlic }, grated onion, green bullet chili, egg whites and mix well. Pre – heat a non sticking pan with vegetable oil using medium heat. {NB: we are not to deep fry.}


4. Make a ball using the spoon or a measuring cup, and place it on the pan, flatten it using the spoon or back of a cup. Let it shallow fry for 5 mins on each side.


5. Prep paper towels and let them sit for 5 mins then serve immediately. This is my brunch breakfast today.


Love and Love.
