Latkes (Jewish Potato Pancakes)- T&T from Wandering Chopsticks

Jewish Potato pancakes, also known as latkes or latkas are shallow-fried pancakes of grated potato and egg, often flavored with grated onion. Potato pancakes may be topped with a variety of condiments, ranging from the savory such as sour cream and to the sweet such as applesauce or sugar, or they may be served ungarnished. Potato pancakes are sometimes made from mashed potatoes to produce pancake-shaped croquettes..Latkes are traditionally eaten by Ashkenazi Jews during the Jewish Hanukkah festival. I had this delicious potato pancakes quite long back at my jewish friend's place but never tried at home, and i have completely forgotten this delicious pancakes, while going through Wandering Chopsticks i found this dish and tried at home today..I felt personally this pancakes tastes marvellous with ketchup..



4nos Potatoes (grated)
1no Onion (grated)
Salt
Pepper powder
1no Egg
Oil for shallow frying

Put the grated potatoes into a colander with a bowl and strain the excess water and starch..Squeeze out the water from the grated onion, take both the grated onions and grated potatoes with salt, pepper powder and toss until they get well mixed, again squeeze out the water as grated potatoes and onions tends to leave water once salt is added..Add the beaten egg to the veggies, meanwhile the strach from the potato water would have settled at the bottom of the bowl,throw out the water and add the potato starch to the grated potato mixture..make out 6-7patties from this mixture..

Heat oil for shallow frying, fry the patties both sides until they turns golden brown, drain the excess oil with paper towel..
