This is a traditional Jewish meal eaten at Chanukkah to celebrate oil.


Traditional recipe:


6 large potatoes

1 onion

1 egg

4 tablespoons plain flour

Salt & Pepper to taste

Oil to fry in.




Peel and grate raw potatoes into a mixing bowl then peel and grate oinion. Add in egg and flour, then slat and pepper as desired. Mix thoroughly then set aside.

Heat oil in a large pan on the stove, when hot enough to deep fry, take large spoonfuls of the potato mix and add to oil. When golden brown turn them over.


These can be enjoyed hot or cold.




You can add various things to the mix to spice it up a bit. I have substituted the onion with spring onion (shallot) vut into thin, green rounds, red chilli, a splash of lemon and coriander (cilantro).


Corn can be added for the colour and texture.


I have also added rosemary for the roast potato flavour or even a spice mix from the supermarket such as Thai or Middle Eastern flavours.


You can swap the potato for sweet potato if you prefer.


Serve with a salad or as a side to a meat dish.

These look wonderful. I am always on the look out for recipes that are quick and vegetarian to boot. These would be so good cold in the summer with salad or grilled veggies. Yum. Thanks for sharing. :chakrahearts:
