Latkas time is short: Make the most of it! In this post you will find everything there is to know about latkas: not just tips on how to fry latkas and other treat safely and effectively, but some other great latkas from around the world: potato latkas and all variations; Moroccan Doughnuts (Sfenj); Curried Indian Pancakes; latkas and burgers; millet fritters; cornmeal blueberry yogurt pancakes; cheese latkas; apple latkas; homemade apple sauce.
Ah Latkas! The food we love to hate! To make matters worse, courtesy of the alarmist low-carb food industry, the humble potato has gone from being a faithful staple at every table to making rare and apologetic appearances, as in Chanukkah, where we fry and eat it with a vengeance.
Please start by reading my post about my Frying Tips: Fear of Frying Therapy; You will be amazed how easy and delicious it becomes to enjoy occasional fried treats, on Chanukkah and beyond.
In addition to adding some delicious fried treats from around the world, you will learn a thing or two about frying safely and efficiently, even for dessert!
Serve your latkas with homemade Apple Sauce: Nothing like it, and so easy to make!
Low-Carb? No problem: Vegetable, Apple, even Cheese Latkas!
We used to enjoy potato latkas year round, courtesy of my mother in law Z”L, who whipped them up at the drop of a hat. All you ever had to say was, ooohhhh I’m dying for some Bubbie Latkas! It is likely thanks to her that I am totally reconciled with making them in every shape and form. Do give a real chance to all the fried treats listed below. As you will see, I pushed the envelope to include veggie burgers and grain fritters: These are quite substantial and are indeed dinner, served alone or topped with your favorite sauce, and a good salad. The best part is, most are gluten-free, and the very few that are not are perfectly adaptable to gluten-free.
