Savta loves to make latkes and kugels. I vividly remember how delicious they were when we were growing up and Savta’s kugel and latkes have become a real delicacy for my children.
This is Savta’s sweet potato latke recipe. It is perfect.
4 medium red potatoes, peeled
1-2 onions, peeled
1 sweet potato
4 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Using the s-blade of the food processor, process 2 potatoes with the onions, eggs, flour and seasonings. Using the shredder blade of the food processor, shred the remaining potatoes and sweet potatoes. Gently combine all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Spoon a ladle-size amount of potato mixture into the oil and fry for 2 minutes. Turn the pancakes over and fry for 2 minutes more. Latkes should be crispy on the outside and golden brown.
Latkes are best served hot from the skillet.
