I got this recipe from my friendly bartender at the pub I frequented in Seoul. His were latka style potatoes, but mine didn't turn out that way. LOL Regardless, I found a great way to make some very tasty fried potatoes. Cooking time does not include cooling potatoes in the fridge.

Yum! This is a delicious recipe and I love making the potatoes ahead and putting them in the refigerator. Makes for quicker preparation at mealtime. I used one small onion and found it to be plenty. Otherwise, made as stated. Thanks, Cathy.
