GITTI - Substituting for wheat germ You need wheat germ, or something similar, to thicken the batter.

You can try whole grain or white bread crumbs. Cracker crumbs or matzo meal (there is also whole wheat matzo meal) works, too.

Matzo meal is actually the traditional addition and you will see it in many recipes. Reply

Raw potatoes- All the recipes I have for latkes use grated raw potatoes- I assume this will be the same. Good luck! Reply

No fry latkes- Oy, vay. It doesn't say what to do with the potatoes. Do you cook them first and mash them, or do you grate them raw? Reply
