CLASSIC POTATO LATKES



Classic Potato Latkes image

This recipe is for a classic, unadorned latke; the kind your Bubbe used to make. No kohlrabi or cumin here. Serve them hot and make more than you think you need. They go fast.

Provided by Melissa Clark

Categories     brunch, dinner, lunch

Time 45m

Yield About 3 dozen

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 large Russet potatoes (about 1 pound), scrubbed and cut lengthwise into quarters
1 large onion (8 ounces), peeled and cut into quarters
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt (or 1 teaspoon fine sea salt), plus more for sprinkling
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Safflower or other oil, for frying

Steps:

  • Using a food processor with a coarse grating disc, grate the potatoes and onion. Transfer the mixture to a clean dishtowel and squeeze and wring out as much of the liquid as possible.
  • Working quickly, transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add the eggs, flour, salt, baking powder and pepper, and mix until the flour is absorbed.
  • In a medium heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, pour in about 1/4 inch of the oil. Once the oil is hot (a drop of batter placed in the pan should sizzle), use a heaping tablespoon to drop the batter into the hot pan, cooking in batches. Use a spatula to flatten and shape the drops into discs. When the edges of the latkes are brown and crispy, about 5 minutes, flip. Cook until the second side is deeply browned, about another 5 minutes. Transfer the latkes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and sprinkle with salt while still warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.

CHEF JOHN'S CLASSIC POTATO PANCAKES



Chef John's Classic Potato Pancakes image

The one and only way to not get perfectly crispy potato pancakes is to not squeeze them properly. More than half the procedure was dedicated to grating, soaking, draining, and squeezing the potatoes. If you don't thoroughly squeeze all the liquid from the potatoes, the pancakes just won't crisp up as well. Top with thinly sliced smoked salmon, sour cream, and fresh dill.

Time 45m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 ¼ pounds russet potatoes, peeled and grated
½ yellow onion, grated
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 cup vegetable oil for frying

Steps:

  • Place potatoes and onion into a large bowl and pour enough cold water in the bowl to cover by several inches. Let rest until potatoes and onion are completely soaked, 20 to 30 minutes. Pour potato mixture into a colander, rinse, drain, and squeeze repeatedly to remove all moisture.
  • Whisk eggs, flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until smooth.
  • Mix potato mixture and egg mixture together in a large bowl with a spatula.
  • Heat 1/4-inch oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, drop large spoonfuls of potato batter into hot oil and flatten with a spatula to about 1/2-inch thick. Cook until the edges of pancakes are golden brown and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, flip pancakes, and cook until golden brown and crispy on the other side, about 5 minutes more. Repeat cooking process with remaining batter.

Categories     Egg     Onion     Potato     Appetizer     Side     Fry     Hanukkah     Quick & Easy     Kosher     Sugar Conscious     Vegetarian     Pescatarian     Peanut Free     Tree Nut Free     Soy Free

Yield Makes about 24 pancakes

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 medium onion, peeled
4 large russet or Idaho potatoes (about 3 1/2 pounds), peeled
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
Applesauce and/or sour cream, for serving

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 200°F. Place 2 nonstick baking sheets in oven.
  • Using box grater or food processor fitted with grating disc, coarsely grate onion and place in colander set in sink. Coarsely grate potatoes, add to colander, and set aside to drain.
  • In large mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs, then whisk in flour.
  • Press potatoes and onion to extract as much liquid as possible, then add to egg/flour mixture. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Using wooden spoon or hands, mix well, but do not overwork.
  • In heavy-bottomed, 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter until hot but not smoking. Drop 4 scant 1/4-cup portions of potato mixture into pan and flatten with spatula to form four 3-inch pancakes.
  • Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, 4 to 5 minutes, then turn over and fry until golden-brown and crisp, an additional 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain; season immediately with salt and pepper. Keep warm on baking sheets in oven while making remaining pancakes.
  • Using paper towels, carefully wipe out pan. Add 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter and fry 4 more pancakes. Repeat with remaining batter, wiping out pan and adding 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter before each batch.
  • Serve pancakes hot with applesauce and/or sour cream.

  • If using food processor: peel and cube the potatoes and onion. Place the vegetables in food processor and process for about 2 minutes, until potatoes look "grated" and no lumps remain. If using grater: peel the potatoes and onion and grate.
  • Place the potato mixture into a fine strainer or kitchen towel and try to squeeze almost all of the liquid into a mixing bowl.
  • Discard the liquid. You'll notice white powder on the bottom of the bowl after you pour the liquid out. It is potato starch and it gives texture to the pancakes, so you should keep it.
  • Return the potato mixture into the bowl and add eggs, flour, with some salt and pepper, and mix everything well.

  • Before you begin making the latkes, place your wire cooling rack close to the area where you will be frying the latkes. Place a layer of paper towels below the cooling rack to catch excess oil. Cut the potatoes into large chunks and shred using a hand grater or food processor shredding attachment with large holes (large shreds). I really recommend using the food processor, it saves a ton of time and will help you avoid tears when grating the onion.
  • Meanwhile, grate the onion using the grater or food processor attachment with fine holes (small shreds).

  • In a large mixing bowl add shredded potato, minced onion, eggs, flour and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Preheat non-stick pan and grease slightly with olive oil (adds extra crispiness and prevents burns). Then with a tablespoon (heaping) add potato pancake batter and spread to form a circle. Pancake should be as thin as possible.
  • Once pancake is fully cooked on one side (check with wooden spatula by slightly lifting around the edges), turn around and let cook. Repeat until potato batter is cooked. Stir batter before each pancake is placed in the pan, as potatoes will let their juice out while waiting to be cooked.
