Potato latkes

Have you ever had latkes? They are well known in post-Soviet  countries as "draniki" and are loved by many as a quick homemade meal which requires only a couple of simple ingredients. They are not diet-friendly but they are delicious so who can resist a little treat from time to time!

Latkes are also a traditional dish for Hanukkah.

To make these you will need:
4 baking potatoes, peeled, grated and drained
1 onion, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoon flour

Vegetable oil for frying

To prepare:
Mix all ingredients until smooth. Heat the oil in a heavy-duty pan until very hot. Reduce heat to medium and drop the spoonful of potato mixture into the hot oil to form a pancake. 

Fry until browned on both sides, flipping latkes with the spatula. Drain on a paper towel.

Serve latkes hot with a sour cream or an apple sauce.
