(NC) - Latkes are traditionally served at the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah, but are delicious year-round, served hot with applesauce, yogourt, light sour cream, or sautéed onions. These Latkes are not deep-fried like traditional latkes. They also include shredded carrots for added vitamin A and skim milk powder for added calcium.
- 1 medium onion, grated 1
- 4 medium potatoes, grated 4
- 1 medium carrot, grated 1
- 2 eggs, beaten 2
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 75 mL
- 1/4 cup skim milk powder 50 mL
- 1 tsp salt 5 mL
- pepper to taste
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil 25 mL
Heat the oven to 200 F.
Combine the onion, potatoes, carrots, eggs, flour, skim milk powder, salt and pepper.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil until it is very hot. Drop the batter by large spoonfuls into the skillet and press them down with the back of a spoon. Fry on both sides until crisp and brown.
Keep cooked latkes warm in the oven while preparing the next batch.
