  3. Spread it on a kitchen towel and press it to remove any remaining water content.

  4. Transfer the grated potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add the Italian seasoning, chilli flakes, egg, bread crumbs, salt and chopped basil to this and mix everything properly.

  8. Press it gently with the spoon and let it crisp up. Repeat the same process with the remaining mixture.
