5 big potatoes
1/3 cup of flour
1 teaspoon salt
oil for frying
Grind the potatoes.
Add eggs, flour and salt.
Warm up oil in frying pan.
Pour batter onto the oil in spoonfuls.
Let fry for about five minutes on medium fire.
Turn over and let fry for another three minutes.
Take out your latkes and lay them on paper towel to cool.
Ooops, someone forgot to put grated onions in the recipe. With 5 potatoes you need at least one large or 2 smallish/medium size grated onions. Adding the onions might mean a little more flour might be needed due to moistness of onions. Geshmucht! This is how my mother made them. Can't come any better than that.

Adding onion keeps the potatoes from turning black. If you drain the grated onion/potato mixture in a clean towel you can drain the water very quickly and thoroughly then add eggs and matzoh meal (need much less now that the water is removed) and seasonings. Makes a white, light textured latke.
