Recently my good friend Vor of Vordoo Cuisine and I were talking about our favourite comfort foods for the colder days, and of course I immediately thought of Latkes.
Latkes are the perfect food for Autumn and Winter and definitely not just reserved for Hanukkah.
You will need:
10 – 15 medium sized potatoes
1 1/2 onions
1 1/2 cups of flour
Salt and pepper
Oil for frying
Peel and grate the potatoes and onions.
Mix the onion and potato very well.
Put the mix onto a tea-towel or cheese cloth and squeeze out as much juice as you can.
In a separate bowl beat four eggs and 1 1/2 cups of flour. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the egg and flour mixture over the potato and onion and combine well.
In a frying pan heat some oil and drop spoon fulls of the Latkes mix.
Push it down gently with a fork and fry both sides until they are golden brown.
Serve with sour cream or cream cheese.
What is your favourite Autumn or Winter food?
Have a lovely day!
