Diana’s Potato Latkes

potato latkes

Usually this recipe would include eggs but I like to cook without eggs for a number of reasons.

One simple reason is to stay food combined properly for optimum digestion. Proteins and carbs fight in the digestive system.  Also, I find that potatoes stick well enough together without anything else.



2 medium potatoes, coarsely grate
1 onion chopped finely chopped
1 – 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
Almond oil or ghee


  1. Mix all potatoes, onions, garlic and salt together.
  2. Drop teaspoon size pancakes into hot oil or ghee (I prefer ghee for the flavour it adds).
  3. Brown on both sides.
  4. Serve with salsa.

    Makes 10-12 small latkes.

    I love the latkes recipe and apple sauce in Greek yogurt is a nice addition in lieu of salsa,I will ommit the garlic, plus Greek yogurt with fresh herbs & garlic.

  3. I love the addition of ghee! I am so glad I can make latkes easily here in Hyderabad! I found this dish to be delicious Indian-ized by adding Guntur Green Chillies, and we use homemade curd made into a riata on top! we love dipping them into our leftover mutton curry gravy for breakfast and go well in place of rice in mutton bone soup andhran style!
