Nice change from potato latkes. The parsnips add a lot of flavor. The potato starch is added to compensate for the additional moisture from the parsnips and ensures they get crispy.

I am always looking for recipes with parsnips. These made a nice change to the potato latkes I often serve when we have roast chicken and I will certainly make them again. Thank you Bergy.

Nice addition to our latkes-evening this Chanuka. The batter was a bit dry so I added one egg. Maybe my parsnips were too old? Anyway, the latkes tasted great and were certainly something I would make again. Thanks for posting. Made for P-A-R-T-Y Holiday Tag, December 2009.
