What are Latkes


The latke is a potato pancake traditionally eaten during Hanukkah. It’s usually fried in oil, but can also be baked or boiled. The traditional recipe includes grated potatoes, onions, eggs and flour that are mixed together until they form a doughy consistency.

The dough is then shaped into pancakes and either fried in oil on the stovetop or deep-fried in oil.
