Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle, full of potato goodness.


  • 6 medium-size potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 65g flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • sour cream, to serve
  • fresh rocket, to serve


Step 1

Combine potatoes, beaten eggs, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl and stir well, until flour is no longer visible.

Step 2

Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large pan, and use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop three piles of potato mixture into hot oil. Let fry on medium-high heat about until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Turn pancakes and press down with a spatula, flattening them as much as possible. Fry until golden brown, and remove onto paper towels. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.

Step 4

Serve pancakes with sour cream and garnished with fresh rocket.
