ingredients

For the Latkes:
  • 2 large Russet potatoes (about 1 pound), scrubbed and cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Casa M Spice Co® Chain Reaction®
  • 1 Tablespoon Casa M Spice Co® Good Shepherd®
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • safflower or other oil for frying

LET’S GET COOKING

  • 1.

    Using a food processor with a grating disc, grate the potatoes and onion. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

  • 2.

    Quickly, add the eggs, flour, salt, baking powder and pepper, and Casa M Spice Co® Good Shepherd. Mix well until the flour is absorbed.

  • 3.

    In a medium heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, pour in about 1/4 inch of the oil.

  • 4.

    Once the oil is hot (a drop of batter placed in the pan should sizzle), use a heaping tablespoon to drop the batter into the hot pan, cooking in batches.

  • 5.

    Use a spatula to flatten lightly and shape the drops into discs.

  • 6.

    When the edges of the latkes are brown and crispy, about 5 minutes, flip. Cook until the second side is deeply browned, about another 5 minutes.

  • 7.

    Transfer the latkes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and sprinkle with salt while still warm. Repeat until all batter is used.

  • 8.

    Great dipping sauces to serve latkes with are mustard based sauces, spinach sauces, creamy herbed feta, salted yogurt but most popular are a dollop of cool sour cream or chunky sweet applesauce.

  • 9.

    You may refrigerate leftovers and bake at 350º for about 10 minutes.
