Introduction: Potato Latkes

Every Hanukkah I look forward to eating potato latkes.  Here is an authentic latke recipe straight from a Jewish mother.

Step 1: Ingredients

5 potatoes
1 onion 
1 carrot 
2 eggs
1/4 cup matzah meal
salt and pepper
Oil (for frying latkes)

Step 2: Prepare Vegetables

Wash, peel and grate the potatoes, onion, and carrot.  Put grated vegetables in a large bowl and mix.

Step 3: Make Latke Mixture

Beat eggs and add them to the potatoes, onion and carrot.   Add the matzah meal and mix well.

Step 4: Frying Latkes

Put oil in a skillet (enough to fry latkes). Heat oil and then put latke mixture by 1/4 to 1/2 cup into the pan. Cook on both sides until mixture is cooked. Place on plate and paper towel to cool off.

    Yum! I really like latkes! Have you tried the cheese latkes? Do you want me to post them?

    sounds like it tastes better than Reifküchen. i might have a go at it one of these days. LIke the instructable.

    Mmmm...this sounds yummy! back in 5th grade there was this girl who was jewish and she fried Latkes and I was like" WOW! These are delicious!" So...now I am going to make these!

    How does this taste like?? Interested in trying it out. What would you make with a side dish or something with this?

    They taste a lot like hash browns if you've had those. If not, just make them! They are delicious and easy (obviously)!

    I am not Jewish yet I love these things. They taste really good!

    That looks very nice

    it looks simple......and THATS GREAT!!! i think i am going to try this out..just wondering can we use other types of flour? say corn or rice flour?
