About: Former Instructables employee CHECK OUT MY WORK

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.
