This recipe is absolutely perfect - flavorful, light in texture, melt in your mouth. They also are great when served with smoked salmon, caviar, Mexican salsa. They are a great starter, side dish or party appetizer too. I like them with some homemade tomato soup.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Peel potatoes, carrots, and onion . (If not using immediately, place in cold water.) Grate each veggie separately with the shredding blade of food processor.
  2. Put grated potatoes in a large strainer and press out liquid. Pour cold water over the potatoes and press out liquid once more. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Add onions and carrots.
  3. Beat eggs and egg whites until thick. Add to potatoes and onions. Add flour or matzo meal, baking powder, and seasonings. (Mom's recipe called for 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoons white pepper, I like beer, so I tried it with weber's seasoning and it was great!) Mix well.
  4. Heat oil in frying pan. When ready, drop batter by large soup spoonfuls to form oval shapes. Fry over moderate to high heat until brown on one side; turn to brown other side. Remove from frying pan and drain on paper towels.
  5. I think next time I will cook them on a frog mat inside my Weber for some added flavor then flash fry them super crispy.
  6. Serve with sour cream and/or applesauce.
