step-by-step directions
step-by-step directions
  • Grate the potato on the large holes of a box grater over a colander. Do the same with the onion directly into the colander. You need only give the onion a few swipes on the grater. Press out liquid, and then transfer to bowl. Add some of the beaten egg to moisten it – the whole egg is not necessary. Add a heaping teaspoon flour, salt, and a few turns of freshly ground black pepper. Combine.  
  • Heat 1” of oil in a large frying pan. Oil is hot enough if a sliver of grated potato sizzles.  Fry by teaspoons pressing out excess liquid before placing in the oil.  Fry on both sides until a deep golden brown.
  • Top with sour cream and caviar or any other topping, such as chutney, or applesauce, and serve as an hors d’oeuvre or appetizer.
