Ingredients

6 medium russet potatoes, peeled

1 large onion, peeled

1 teaspoon sour salt (citric acid)

2 eggs

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons granulated onion

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Vegetable oil, for griddle and deep-frying

Directions

  1. Grate the potatoes and onion into a large container. Add cold water to cover and the sour salt. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the grated potatoes, squeezing out as much liquid as possible. Transfer to a bowl and add the eggs, flour, granulated onion, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Add a small amount of oil to a griddle over high heat. Slide in the potato mixture in large oval-shaped spoonfuls. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Cool in the refrigerator for 45 minutes.
  4. Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep, heavy pot to 350 degrees F. In batches, fry the latkes for about 5 minutes, until brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels before serving.
