  • 2 lb (900g) potatoes, peeled
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil, for frying
  • Sour cream, for serving
  • Chives, for serving


  • Grate the potatoes and onion either manually, using a box grater, or with a food processor. If doing it manually, grate few potatoes, then half onion, then repeat the process. It needs to be done like that to avoid potatoes turning dark.
  • Drain the potato and onion mixture, discarding the liquid, but reserving the starch that you'll get.
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs and add salt, pepper (I added 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper) and garlic.
  • Combine the potato and onion mixture, starch, and egg mixture. Add the flour. Mix well.
  • In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of the potato mixture and spread out to a circle. The oil should cover about the half of the potato mixture. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Pat the pancakes dry with paper towels.
  • Serve with a sour cream and chives on top. Enjoy!
