Potatoes, sweet potatoes, and zucchini give these latkes their colorful look. To make Two-Tone Latkes instead, simply leave out the zucchini.
2 large potatoes
1 large sweet potato
1 medium zucchini
1 medium onion
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 shake of pepper
1/4 cup matzah meal
- Peel potatoes. Grate potatoes and zucchini and set in colander to drain while you grate the onion.
- Press as much liquid out of potato mixture as you can and add to beaten eggs.
- Add salt, pepper and matzah meal (if needed, add a little more matzah meal until you have a good consistency).
- Mix well. Drop batter in hot oil. Brown on both sides and drain on absorbent paper.
