Potato Latkes...

This was a recipe that I came to know of from a tv channel. Not now but a very long tie ago. It was so simple yet so deliciously tempting that I knew I got to give it a try. Then as my wishlist goes on increasing my tiny brain keeps on forgetting most of the time. It was there in my mind giving an appearance nice in a while and then finally got a chance to make on a nice rainy day a few months ago

Potatoes are so delicious in every form and this one is a crown to it. My kids loved it more than I thought. Made a small batch to try out and it was too good. Next time have to double the recipe else I wont even get to taste it :)

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Onion - 1 big
Potatoes - 3 big
Egg - 1 
Corn flour - 1 tbspn
Oil for frying
Pepper - a pinch
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....

    • Take a wide bowl. Grate the onion into it
    • Peel the potatoes, wash them and grate them into the bowl
    • Transfer the grated onion and potatoes to a thin cloth
    • Pull the ends of the cloth to make it like a hanging pot. Twist it a couple of times and gently squeeze out the excess liquid. Squeeze out as much as possible
    • Transfer it back to a bowl
    • Crack open an egg into the bowl
    • Add a tablespoon of cornflour, pepper and salt to the bowl. Mix everything together gently to form a sticky mass
    • Heat 4-5 tbspns of oil to a pan
    • Spoon in a tablespoonful of the mixture into it. Pat it down gently to make it look like a mini dosa/pancake
    • Cook on low-medium flame till golden brown crust forms. Flip over and cook on the other side too
    • When done remove and drain on paper towels to take off the excess oil
    • Serve hot and enjoy

    • Use little salt only
    • Dont overbrown the latkes else they turn bitter
    • Try cooking on low-medium flame to cook through. Towards the end increase the flame a little to make it crisp
