Potato Latkes
  1. Shred the potatoes and the onion in a food processor. Pour them into a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients
  2. Heat a frying pan with enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, start spooning a tablespoon of the batter at a time to form small pancakes in the frying pan. Turn the latkes over once the bottom side is crispy.
  3. Once both sides have browned, remove the latkes and place on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil. Repeat until all batter is done
  4. Enjoy with applesauce and/or sour cream.
Recipe Notes

Tips and Tricks:

  • Tamara likes to use her food processor to finely shred the potatoes as it gives them a smoother consistency
  • The shredded potatoes will look soupy, but don’t drain the liquid. Don’t be alarmed- this is how they should look.
  • Once it’s all mixed, it should look more like a loose batter than a dough. It should hold on to the spoon slightly before falling into the pan.
