How to make it

  • Using a box grater or food processor, grate peeled potatoes.
  • Place grated potatoes on several sheets of paper towel and press down to remove all moisture.
  • Thinly slice/grate onion.
  • Whisk eggs and add to onions, garlic and potatoes.
  • Stir in flour, baking powder, parsley, salt and pepper and blend evenly.
  • If you feel the mixture is too dry, add a tablespoon or 2 of milk.
  • Pour enough oil into a large deep frying pan to measure 1-1/2 to 2 inches and place over medium-high heat.
  • When the oil is hot enough, form potato mixture into pancake type shapes with hands.
  • Carefully place latkes into oil and cook for at least 5-6 minutes per side.
  • Do not over-crowd the frying pan.
  • When the latkes are cooked, remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towel or a cookie rack to drain.
  • Have either a separate plate or a cookie sheet handy to place latkes on and keep warm in a 325 degree oven until ready to serve.
  • Condiments are sour cream and applesauce.
