    1. 1
      Working over a bowl, grate some of the onion, followed by some of the potatoes, on the large-hole side of a box grater.
    2. 2
      Repeat until all of the vegetables are shredded.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the potato mixture with salt and transfer to a sieve set over a bowl.
    4. 4
      Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the mixture, allowing it to collect in the bottom of the bowl.
    5. 5
      Transfer the potato mixture to another bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap; set aside.

      Pour off the liquid from the starch.
    8. 8
      Transfer the starch to the potato mixture along with the chives, matzo meal, eggs, and pepper; gently mix.
    9. 9
      Pour oil into the skillet to a depth of 1/4 inch and heat over med-high heat.
    10. 10
      Working in small batches, form the potato mixture into balls, using about 1/4 cup of the mixture for each, and place them in the oil.
    11. 11
      Flatten each ball gently with a spatula to form 3-inch to 4-inch pancakes.
    12. 12
      Fry, turning once, until golden brown, crisp, and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
    13. 13
      Transfer the latkes to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.

      Serve the latkes warm with sour cream or applesauce.
