Here’s to my all time favorite latke recipe. My grandmothers Chanuka heirloom – punched up with some alcoholic properties…
The perfect Chanuka-party-potato-pancake! Enjoy!!!
- 2 Onions
- 10 Potatoes
- 3 Eggs
- 1⁄2 cup Matzo Meal
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Salt
- 1⁄8 cup Olive Oil (plus plenty for frying!)
- crushed black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Vodka
- sour cream (optional)
- applesauce (optional)
Peel and quarter the potatoes and onions. Process in food processor, in shifts, until pureed. Pour potato/onion puree into a colander in the sink, in order to rid of excess potato liquid. Pour into a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well with a spoon.
Heat up plenty of oil (the latkes should be lightly floating in it – but not deep frying!) Fry each side on medium/high until golden brown. Serve immediately with a dollop of cold sour cream topped with cold applesauce for the best effect!!
(Can be re-heated later, single layered in the oven on °200)
