Potato Latkes , or Jewish Potato Pancakes, are not the healthiest dish in the world but they are such a delicious treat! Once in a while they aren’t so bad for you. Served for a number of Jewish holidays, especially at Rosh Hashanah. You’ll need quite a bit of oil for these potatos (they’re like a deep fried mash potato, if you’re unsure!). You can try making them with a little less oil but if you eat them infrequently, treat yourself and follow my recipe!
- 1 Box Latkes Mix
- 1 Egg
- Oil for Frying
- Sour Cream
- Cherry tomato for garnish
- Pour the mix into a bowl, add water and 1 egg. (Some instructions may vary depending on the Latkes Mix you have). Mix together with a fork.
- With dry hands form circular flat patties.
- Add a generous amount of oil to a pan (1/4 inch) and set to a high heat.
- Add the Latkes patties to the oil and fry for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally.
- Lay down paper towels and set the latkes on top to absorb the grease.
- Sprinkle with chives, tomato and a dollop of sour cream.
