Maluns – Graubünden specialty

Customs Graubünden

Maluns is a traditional potato dish that originated in the rural cuisine of Graubünden. It is made from potatoes that have been boiled and grated the day before, mixed with flour and slowly roasted in delicious butter. Although it is sometimes compared to the famous Rösti, Maluns is more of a kind of potato ribel, which impresses with its unique taste and consistency.

The preparation of maluns requires care and experience. The cooked potatoes are skillfully grated and combined with a gentle pinch of flour to achieve a perfect blend. They are then slowly fried in butter until they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside – a real treat for any potato lover.

There are various ways to serve maluns, depending on your personal taste. A popular accompaniment is apple sauce, which adds a pleasant sweet note and a lovely freshness to the dish. Alternatively, it can be sprinkled with alpine cheese to add a savory note, or even served with a warm latte for a delicious combination of flavors.

Maluns is more than just a simple potato dish – it is a piece of culinary history that reflects the rural tradition and rich culture of Graubünden. The use of fresh, regional ingredients and artisanal preparation make Maluns an unmistakable and unforgettable taste experience. Anyone who wants to experience authentic Grisons cuisine should definitely try Maluns and be enchanted by its unique charm.
