Amazing and simple dish!
  • 5 potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • between ¼ to ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • oil for frying (canola)
  1. Peel potatoes. Place in a bowl of cold water so they won’t turn brown.

  3. Pour potato mixture into a large bowl. Add beaten eggs. Add salt and pepper. Add enough flour so that the mixture holds together.
  4. Pour 1 inch of oil into a large, deep frying pan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Carefully drop ¼ cup of the potato mixture into the hot oil.
  6. Flatten the pancake slightly so the center will cook.
