Ingredients
  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1 medium onion
  • Lemon juice
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/8 cup melted butter
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Watercress, to garnish
  • Caviar, to garnish
  • Applesauce, for garnish
  • Creme fraiche, for garnish
Directions
  • Grate potatoes and onions on a large-hole grater. Splash with lemon juice and squeeze out excess water.

  • Mix flour, milk, egg, baking powder, and nutmeg. Add to the potatoes and then add the melted butter.

  • Heat some peanut oil in a skillet and fry until golden on one side. Flip, and cook the same way on the other.

  • Serve with watercress, caviar, applesauce, and creme fraiche.

  • **For Passover, omit the baking powder and replace the flour with matzo (ground into flour), which will make a slightly denser latke. Fry it slowly.
