One of the customs during Chanukah is to eat foods fried in oil to commemorate the miracle of the oil lasting for 8 days. Latkas and fried jelly donuts are the two main foods we fry up during the 8 days fest. Sounds good, no?
Now, just like the spelling of Chanukah, there are a million different latka recipes and everyone thinks theirs is the best.
The basics are the same though: shredded/grated potatoes, some onion, flour and egg to bind it all together, and oil, lots of oil.
Some people mix in other veggies or types of potatoes. Some hand grate, some use a food processor, or even a veggie spiralizer. Some make more patty like latkas and others more free form rustic ones.
No matter what, the end result is a crispy, tasty Chanukah treat. But then, it begs the question...
Topping them with apple sauce or sour cream...?
My personal favorite is a blend of regular and sweet potatoes. I personally like mine more rustic and crispy and topped with lots of apple sauce!
