Serves: 6 

  • 300g peeled, grated potatoes
  • 1/4 onion, grated
  • 5 tablespoons chopped spring onion
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour, or as needed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, or to taste
  • 250ml rapeseed oil, or as needed

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Place the potatoes in a cloth, and wring them to remove as much moisture as possible. Mix the potatoes, onion, spring onion, eggs, flour, and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat until it shimmers. Drop about 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture per cake into the hot oil, and flatten the potatoes to make the cakes 3 to 5mm thick. Brown the cakes in the hot oil until golden and crisp on the bottom, about 5 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side. Drain the cakes on kitchen paper, and serve hot.
