    Miraklegirl's Note:

    From Bon Appetit (2001). These different latkes have an almost indian taste to them and they are just delicious! Top with sour cream or plain yogurt mixed with fresh mint.

      These were very good. They taste a little like falafel, but not as heavy. I sprayed a nonstick frying pan with olive oil spray instead of the 6 tbsps of olive oil & used a measuring tablespoon to drop the batter so the pancakes were about 2". I served them as an appetizer--3 small latkes, some salad greens and a couple of dollops of tehina on the side. They were a tiny bit too salty (and I love salt!) so I'm going to slightly reduce the salt next time.

      Great consistency and very easy to make. However I found these to be a bit bland. If I make it again will spruce it up with more spices perhaps.
