Ingredients

  • 2 1/2

    pounds baking potatoes peeled

  • 1

    medium onion julienned

  • 2

    eggs

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground white pepper to taste

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 2

    tablespoons matzah or all-purpose flour

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • 1

    cup applesauce

  • 1

    cup sour cream

  • 4

    ounces Caviar

Directions

Using a hand grater or food processor, grate the potatoes. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated potatoes, onions, eggs, baking powder, and flour. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cover the bottom with 1/2-inch of oil. When the oil is hot, spoon 2 tablespoons of the filling into individual cakes. Using the back of the spoon, flatten each pancake. Pan-fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Fry the cakes in batches and do not over crowd the pan. To serve, place a dollop of the applesauce or sour cream in the center of each latke. Place the latkes on a platter and serve warm. This recipe yields 2 dozen.
