Cumin and Spinach Latkes


Latkes are potato pancakes popularly made in Europe . They are a quick version of our vegetable cutlet and can be delicious with the addition of a couple of spices.

Here is my take on the latke.

1/2 kg potatoes , peeled and coarsely grated .

1 small onion peeled and finely grated

1 bunch spinach, cooked

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp cumin powder

A pinch of garam masala

2 eggs, beaten

2 large tablespoons of flour.

Squeeze the liquid out of the grated potatoes, the grated onion and the cooked spinach.

Add the salt, pepper ,cumin and garam masala. Mix well . Now add the beaten eggs and flour. Mix again.

Heat oil in a non stick frying pan. When medium hot put a large spoonful of the mix and flatten it with a spatula till about 3-4 inches in diameter.Do this twice more till there are three large latkes in the pan. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side till golden brown. Serve immediately when still crisp or keep warm in an oven.
