For boiling potatoes – Boil them until they are soft( at least 20 minutes or more in a pot of boiling water) and you can easily pierce a knife across them. If using an instant pot, boil them on high pressure for 10 minutes, release pressure after 5 minutes. Again, this will depend on the size of the potatoes.

This recipe of potato cakes is different from the homemade hash browns recipe as we have completely boiled the potatoes here, while in the hash brown, we partially boil the potatoes.
