Makes 6 pancakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated onions
  • 2 cups coarsely grated potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, flour, salt, pepper and onion.

Place the grated potatoes on a piece of cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel, gather the ends together, and wring the potatoes to extract their moisture. Add the grated potatoes to the egg mixture and stir well. Shape the mixture into 6 thin potato pancakes.

In a large, heavy frying pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil until almost smoking. Add 3 of the pancakes and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining 3 pancakes. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
