Tonight we were invited to celebrate with our friends, we had the full set - the menorah, dreidels, sufganiyout and latkes. Gabi made some delicious latkes that quickly disappeared during the lively discussion about latkes recipes. Most people that I know prefer them coarsely grated with onions and eggs, something like that (from chefkosher.com):
4cups peeled potatoes, grated
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 tspn salt
2 tbspn flour
salt and pepper to taste
1. Make sure to squeeze out any liquid from the potatoes.
2. Combine all the ingredients together.
3. Heat oil in a pan. Use a spoon to scoop the mixture into the pan making patties.
4. Fry until golden-brown on either side.
5. Serve with sour-cream
I personally prefer them the way my parents are making them - grated very very thin, without onions or eggs. I wrote about it last year here. I eat them with sour cream and my kids eat them with sugar. No apple sauce in our house! :)
My Ella is fascinated with Hanukkah. She read all Hanukkah books in the school library several times. One of her favorite books is "Potato pancakes all around" It is a story about a peddler that teachers the villagers how to make potato pancakes from a crust of bread. I read this book to her at least 20 times and every time she makes sure that we have the "recipe" :)
Traditional latkes are made from potatoes but they can me made from any other vegetable or vegetable mix. Sweet potato latkes are delicious!
