Stove top, Kitchen Towel, Pot (small), Peeler, Grater, Frying pan
Wash & peel the potatoes. Peel the onion.
Grate potatoes & 1/2 an onion (or whole small onion) with a cheese grater.
Remove excess water by wrapping the grated potato & onion mixture in a clean dishcloth & squeezing firmly.
In a medium bowl, combine the potato & onion mixture with the flour & eggs. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the potato mixture. (You can cook more than one potato pancake at a time in a larger frying pan.)
Flatten the mixture by pressing down with the back of a spatula. Cook for 5 minutes or until bottom side is golden brown.
Flip the latke over & cook for 3 minutes or until done to your liking. It should be golden brown on both sides. Continue until all the mixture is cooked into crispy pancakes.
Remove from heat. Serve with slices of smoked salmon, dollop of sour cream & a sprinkle of fresh chives or scallions (optional). Enjoy!
