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.
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.
