    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.

    Absolutely love this recipe. Very easy and just delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!!  -  08 Jun 2012


    These were really good and easy. I added some jalepenos and baked them with no oil, just spray and they turned out perfectly. Served as appetizers.  -  31 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    DOH! Why didn't I think of this before? I made these in appetizer size and they were gone in a flash. For speed, I used thawed frozen hashed browns, and they worked just fine. Just enough kick to be interesting. I would suggest using a quality cajun seasoning. (If you're looking to watch your sodium intake, there are many fine salt-free cajun seasonings available.) I'm certain that I'll try these latkes in other ethnic incarnations as well: mexican, etc. Thank you, CC!  -  04 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
