    Ingredients
    Makes: 12 potato cakes

    • 3 large potatoes, peeled and grated

    1. Place the potatoes and onion into a bowl. Stir in eggs, salt and just enough flour to hold the mixture together. With wet hands, scoop up about 5 tablespoons of the mixture per potato cake and form into flat round or oval shapes.
    2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until it shimmers. Gently place the potato cakes into the hot oil. Fry until the bottoms are golden brown and crisp, 5 to 8 minutes, then flip with a spatula and fry the other side until golden.
    3. Line a colander or strainer with 2 kitchen towels and drain. Serve hot.
