Sour Cream and Chive Potato Pancakes

READY IN: 35mins




  • Grate the potatoes coarsely; squeeze the excess moisture from the potatoes; combine the potato in a large bowl with the onion, garlic, chives, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper to taste, egg yolks flour and sour cream.
  • Beat the egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until firm peaks o the potato mixture.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil with 20g of the butter in a non-stick pan; cook heaped tablespoons of the potato mixture, uncovered, until browned on both sides; drain the pancakes on absorbent kitchen paper and cover to keep warm; repeat with the same amounts of the remaining oil, butter and potato mixture.
  • Notes: One Australian measuring cup holds approximately 250ml (8 fluid ounces), one Australian tablespoon holds 20ml and one Australian teaspoon holds 5ml. North America, New Zealand and the United Kingdom use a 15ml tablespoon. In this recipe, the addition of the rosemary and sage is really best guided by taste. I never measure herbs.
