5 large floury potatoes, peeled
1 medium onion
4 eggs, beaten
50g matzoh meal
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
120ml vegetable oil, for frying

1) Grate the potatoes and onion into a bowl or pulse in a food processor. Drain any excess liquid, then add the eggs, matzoh meal, salt and pepper.

2) Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Spoon the potato mixture into the hot oil forming small scotch pancakes. Cook until the underside is golden, about 2 to 3 minutes.

3) Flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden and the potatoes are cooked through, about 2 minutes more. Serve hot with sour cream or apple sauce.
