How to make it

  • Coarsely grate potatoes and onions (a food processor saves a great deal of time).
  • Salt the potato mixture to taste.
  • Drain salted grated potatoes and onions in a sieve or colander, trying to reserve as much potato starch as possible. Discard liquid.
  • Mix in eggs.
  • Pour in just enough oil to cover the bottom of a nonstick frying pan.
  • Place the pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the potato mixture into the pan and flatten.
  • Cook until golden-brown, approximately 3 minutes, depending on the stove. Flip and cook until the other side is also browned and crisp.
  • Drain on a paper towel covered plate and keep warm in the oven.
  • Replenish oil and repeat until all the batter is gone. Avoid using any liquid that accumulates in the bottom of the bowl.
  • Serve with applesauce, sour cream, or smoked salmon.

    Looks Terrific! We eat these in a local deli and can't get enough of them.

    This looks very similar to the ones the German chef I worked for made and I never got the recipe, so I'm thrilled. Thank you!
