HOW TO MAKE DELICIOUS
(beside avoiding to spill flour on the floor).
The problem is not how to make them, but
how to make enough of them.
Below we show you how to make the latkes –
consider to triple the measures if you intend to
serve the latkes for someone who like them.
You can find hundreds of different recipes on the Internet.
Here is the recipe that has been awarded by a jury of
latkes-loving people to be the most tasty and delicious
potatoe-latkes-recipe in the world.
It is meant for 35 latkes – but if you are surrounded by some
latkes-lovers, you may consider tripling the measures given.
The best and most tasty latkes
in the world
1 egg, 300 gr. of coarse grated raw potatoes, 100 gr. of wheat flour or matzeh-meal, 5 ml (1 tsp.) of baking powder, 5 ml (1 tsp.) of fine salt, 5 ml (1 tsp.) of powdered cinnamon, 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of sugar, 15 ml (3 tsp.) of strong chili-powder. Squeeze out as much water from the grated potatoes as possible – and mix the all the ingredients mentioned above in a large bowl. Ad some milk – about or enough to make the dough fit and fluid enough for making flat pancake like cakes on a frying pan (0,2 l). Mix all the ingredients well once more. Put some vegetable oil – about ⅜ to ½ cup – (oils from any plant can do it, but peanut oil is making the best latkes) on a well-heated frying pan.
Drain the fried latkes on paper towels …
and thereafter keep the latkes warm in an oven.
The latkes can be served …
… with sour cream, apple-pear sauce,
strawberry marmalade, sugar
or a topping of anything you like.
