My mum suggested that we make these, so I searched the Internet for recipes. I found two, but was disappointed with both: onion powder? Half a sweet potato? No sour cream? How authentic is that? (links below) So we decided to make up our own recipe, a kind of combination of both of those. It's easy to make, vegetarian and delicious, so we thought you might like it too. http://www.polish-recipes.com/recipes.php/21/Polish-Platski---Potato-Pancakes/Sides/ http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/platski_83346
