2 large potatoes, peeled and grated
1 small onion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, lightly whisked
Vegetable oil for frying
Sour cream or applesauce for serving (optional)
Preparation and Cooking Time: Approximately 25 minutes.
In a sizeable bowl, amalgamate the grated potatoes, diced onion, minced garlic, all-purpose flour, salt, black pepper, and whisked egg. Ensure the mixture is well-combined.
In a large skillet, heat about 1/4 inch depth of vegetable oil over medium heat.
Scoop spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, slightly flattening each with a spatula. Allow each side to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they turn a golden brown and achieve a crispy texture.
With a slotted spoon, carefully lift the fritters from the skillet and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any surplus oil.
Serve your Potato Fritters warm, accompanied by sour cream or applesauce if preferred. Enjoy!
