- 3 cups shredded potatoes (3-4 medium potatoes)
- 1 small onion, chopped coarsely
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbl flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- peanut oil for frying
In a food processor, combine the onion, eggs, flour, seasonings and baking powder. Process until onion is grated. In large mixing bowl, combine shredded potatoes with the mixture from the processor.
Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a 10 inch skillet over medium high heat. Using a slotted spoon, scoop a large spoonful of latke mixture and gently place in hot oil to avoid splashing. You should be able to fit 4 large latkes in the skillet at a time.
Fry 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown.
Remove to a wire rack or paper towels to drain. Then place on a baking sheet in warm oven while you finish frying the last 4 latkes. Scoop remaining 4 latkes and continue frying.
Serve with applesauce or sour cream. You can freeze fried latkes and just heat them up for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven when you wish to serve them.
