  1. Place the potatoes into a small saucepan, add enough cold water to cover them, then place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until just tender when pierced with a knife.

  2. Drain and run under cold water until cool enough to handle.

  3. Coarsely grate the potatoes, skin included, into a large bowl. Add the spring onions, half the chives and plenty of salt and black pepper. Mix together until it forms a sticky mixture.

  4. Divide the mixture in half and form each piece into a rough patty shape then dust in the flour.

  5. Set to one side while you cook the steak.

  7. Set aside on a plate to rest while you cook the rosti. Wipe the pan out and return to the heat. Add the last of the oil and the rosti and fry on each side for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and tender.

  8. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil Add the sugar snap peas and cook for 2 minutes until just tender. Drain. Mix the yoghurt and horseradish sauce together and season with black pepper.
