1. Squeeze any excess liquid from the grated vegetables. Mix with the eggs, cornflour and seasoning.
2. Coat the base of a pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Drop in tablespoons of veggie mixture. Cook them for about 3 minutes on each side, until crispy and golden. Place the rösti on paper towel to drain, then cool on a wire rack.
3. Combine the cottage cheese and mustard.

You can also cook the röstis in a muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 200°C, grease a tin and dollop in the veggie mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden.
