DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the unpeeled potatoes for 30-40 minutes, until they are cooked soft all the way in (check with fork if necessary).
  • Drain and peel the cooked potatoes.
  • Mash the potatoes in a big mixing bowl. They don't need to be perfectly smooth, but should be pretty well mashed.
  • Add salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes, checking by taste.
  • Add the eggs and matzoh meal to the potatoes and mix. At this point it should be close to the consistency of a batter, ready for making pancakes. If you feel it is still too thick (or if you just want to experiment with richness or taste a bit) you can add a bit of milk or butter here too).
  • Preheat oil in a large frying pan.
  • When the oil is hot add big spoonfuls of the potato batter. You can flatten them a little with the spoon. Fry until air holes start appearing on the top of the batter (maybe a minute and a half, but you have to check this yourself). Flip and cook the second side until both sides are about evenly cooked.
