Here's a new take on classic potato latkes. Cooking.com Tip: Believe it or not, peeling potatoes with a hand-crank potato peeler makes this kitchen chore fun. Not only does this device peel potatoes effortlessly, but it cores and slices apples, too. You may find people volunteering for kitchen duty.
- 2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
- One 8-ounce onion, peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh fennel fronds (leafy green tops)
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed in plastic bag
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Non-dairy sour cream (such as Imo)
- Potato, Fennel and Olive Relish (see recipe)
Companion recipe: Potato, Fennel and Olive Relish
Using coarse shredding blade in processor, shred 1/3 of potatoes and
1/3 of onions. Repeat with remaining potatoes and onion in 2 batches.
Transfer mixture to large kitchen towel. Twist towel tightly around
mixture and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Place potato
mixture in large bowl. Add fennel fronds, eggs, flour, salt, fennel seeds,
pepper and baking powder and blend well.
Pour enough oil into heavy large skillet to coat bottom and heat over
medium-high heat. For each latke drop 1/4 cupful batter into skillet.
Flatten each mound with spatula to 3- to 4-inch round. Fry latkes until
golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer latkes to large
baking sheet. Repeat frying with remaining batter, leaving behind in bowl
any liquid that collects in batter when you measure, and adding more oil to
skillet as needed.
DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.
Rewarm latkes on baking sheets in 350 degree F oven until crisp, about 15 minutes.
Arrange latkes on plates. Spoon non-dairy sour cream and relish alongside and serve.
