I highly recommend a good knife for this dish


1. Peel potatoes, wash and grate finely. Drain in a sieve to get rid of excess moisture.

2. Add egg, flour, finely chopped onion, salt and pepper.

3. Heat some oil in a pan about a tablespoon making sure the pan is well coated to prevent sticking.

4. Drop about 1/2 cup full of the potato pancake mix in the pan and fry on both sides till nicely brown about 3-4 minutes.

Serve with apple sauce or sour cream or both!
