  • Scrub potatoes and onion, then shred them using food processor or manually using a grater.
  • Wring out as much liquid as possible, reserving liquid in a separate bowl. Work batter in batches. Use a cheesecloth or thin produce bag to help you wring out excess liquid. Add potato-onion mixture to a seperate bowl and set aside.
  • Dispose of liquid in your sink, however, reserve the bottom white starch left behind. Add the starch back into your potato-onion mixture.

  • Add eggs, flour, salt, baking powder and pepper to potato-onion mixture and mix well.
  • Heat a generous layer of oil in a heavy-bottom pan or electric skillet. The oil is hot when you put a single potato strand into the oil and it sizzles. Add latkes by the spoonful (to desired size and thickness) to skillet or pan, careful not to overcrowd.
