How to make delicious Latkes?
Mixing fresh onions into the batter for a latke makes all the difference between boring latkes and addictive, irresistible latkes. And adding shaved jalapeño in the dill sauce offers the perfect amount of heat and intrigue, just like chipotle sweet potato, or spicy potato wedges.
- Mix your shredded potatoes with eggs, cornmeal, and chopped onions in a large bowl.
- Scoop little balls of this potato batter (about 2 tablespoons each) into the hot oil. Gently flatten them with a spatula.
- Fry until they turn golden on both sides, flipping occasionally.
- Once finished, keep your mouth-watering latkes on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain excess oil, and then keep them in a warm oven until they are ready to be served.
