  • Then reduce the heat to medium and fry until the latkes are browned on the bottom and the edges are crispy, 3-5 minutes.
  • Then flip and cook on the other side for about 5 minutes more, until browned and crispy. Then transfer the latkes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and repeat with the remaining batter.
